Georgetown has long been home to the most affluent and influential residents of the capital--but it has also played host to its fair share of high-end misdeeds and wickedly amusing scandals. Culprits range from Confederate spies to the prankster students who stole the clock hands of Georgetown University's Healy Hall, while crime scenes include murder on the C&O Canal and floating brothels on the Potomac. Navigating her way through Cold War-era intrigues and the true-ish story of an exorcism, author Canden Schwantes guides readers through the tawdry and downright devilish side of Georgetown.
