The Crime Buff's Guide to Outlaw Washington, DC

The Crime Buff's Guide to Outlaw Washington, DC Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Washington, DC, isnt known as the “District of Crime” or the “Murder Capital of America” for nothing. Though the capital citys motto is “justice for all,” DC has a darker side, including an extensive history of crimes and misdemeanors, some political and some not. The Crime Buffs Guide to Outlaw Washington, DC is the ultimate guidebook to the criminal and seedy history of the nations capital—plus Maryland, Northern Virginia, and (ironically) Arlington National Cemetery. It also contains an entire chapter pinpointing key and little-known sites in the Lincoln Assassination. With photographs, maps, directions, and precise GPS coordinates, this collection of outlaw tales serves as both a travel guide and an entertaining and enlightening read. It is a one-of-a-kind exploration into well-known and more obscure sites in DC that retain memories of bandits, corpse-snatchers, murderers, snipers, bootleggers, assassins, rogue scientists, spies, mobsters, and corrupt politicians—even a legendary serial killer dressed in a bunny suit—and their scandalous deeds.

Synopsis:

The Crime Buff's Guide to Outlaw Washington D.C. is the ultimate guide to the criminal history of our nation's capitol.  It reveals the darker side of the city through riveting tales from history, photos, maps, directions, and GPS coordinates for sites to visit.

Synopsis:

Washington D.C. did not receive nicknames such as the District of Crime or Murder Capital of America for no reason.  Though the capital city's motto is "justice for all," D.C. has a darker side, including an extensive history of fugitives from the law and injustice against the innocent.  The Crime Buff's Guide to Outlaw Washington D.C. is the ultimate guidebook to the criminal and seedy history of the nation's capital.  With photographs, maps, directions, and sites to visit, this collection of outlaw tales serves as both a travel guide and an entertaining and informational read.  It is a one-of-a-kind exploration into well-known and more obsure sites in D.C. that retain memories of bandits and their scandalous deeds.
