The large stately mansion stood majestic and proud upon Capitol Hill, overlooking Seattle in a way that seemed almost to proclaim its dominance of the entire city. But behind those innocent walls lurked a very dark shadow of its past, and the new owners; Tommy and Geoffrey, were to be the next victims of a frightening journey that may well lead to the undoing of their relationship - if not their very lives.

From the Demon Cat that stalks the Washington crypt to the restless spirit of John Quincy Adams in Statuary Hall, it is no wonder that in 1898 the Philadelphia Press declared the Capitol to be the most thoroughly haunted building in the world. Yet there are as many ghosts in the neighborhood as there are beneath the dome. Local writer and guide Tim Krepp intrepidly takes on the best-known haunted tales while also exploring the lesser-known specters. From the weeping lady of The Maples to Commodore Tingey, who still stands watch in the Navy Yard, to the dozens of famous ghosts hosted by Congressional Cemetery, many former residents seem bound to their old home. Join Krepp as he explores the most historic and hair-raising haunts of the Hill.

This recently revised 388 page book conclusively reports that Washington, D.C., is statistically the UFO sightings capital of the world. The author presents over 200 eye-witness accounts of UFO incursions in DC from 1850 to 2007. For the first time, it is revealed that UFOs were sighted over DC at least 22 times in 1952. This caused President Truman to issue a "shoot-on-sight" order of all UFOs in American airspace. However, this presidential directive was soon rescinded after military jets fell from the sky while attempting to intercept UFOs over Washington, D.C. Exactly 50 years later, in July of 2002, UFOs were photographed with 35mm film landing on Capitol Hill. Just ten days later, NORAD scrambled military jets to intercept UFOs in the prohibited/restricted airspace around the capital. The author's two-and-a-half-year investigation of the authentic photographs, and the ongoing military intercepts, led him to dig deep and uncover the amazing covert history of UFOs and ETs in Washington, D.C.

Ohio Congressman Bob Ney plead guilty to federal charges of corruption and falsification of federal documents in connection with Jack Abramoff, a Washington super lobbyist-turned criminal. As a six-term member of congress, Bob found himself caught up in a culture of greed, backstabbing, and corruption that eventually destroyed his career. In his new book, Bob recounts the events leading up to his resignation, his own guilt, and how a powerful member of congress and the Bush Administration officials played leading roles in both the Abramoff scandal and Bob's own downfall.

The Capitol Page Program allowed teenagers to serve as nonpartisan federal employees performing a number of duties within the House, Senate and Supreme Court. Though only Senate Pages remain after the controversial closing of the House Page Program in 2011, current and former pages' unique perspectives still, and perhaps not surprisingly, play an important role in United States government. The author, a former Senate Page, shares firsthand accounts along with interviews of past pages and some current notable political figures. In-depth research into the history of Capitol Pages' duties, schooling, experiences, downfalls and victories--including the admission of the first African American and female pages--illustrates the importance of the program in both the lives of the pages and in American politics.
