In the summer of 2001, the sudden disappearance of Chandra Levy, a young, promising intern, and the possible involvement of Congressman Gary Condit gripped the nation. Six years after Levy's disappearnce, Higham and Horwitz, two Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalists, revisited the case and the result was a thirteen-part series in the Washington Post. Now the basis of this book, Finding Chandra explores the bungled police efforts to locate the crime scene and catch a killer, the ambition and hubris of Washington's power elite and press corps, the dark nature of political scandal, and the agony of parents struggling to comprehend the loss of a child. Above all, it is a quintessential portrait of a cast of outsiders who came to Washington with dreams of something better, only to be forever changed.
