The Call House: A Washington Novel

Posted on Thursday, August 3, 2017 | No Comments

In this funny, fast-paced novel, 1940s Washington DC is the main character, not just the setting. As the adolescent world capital fills up with trainloads of hopefuls, you'll get to know a naive, adventure-seeking girl from small town Tennessee, an idealistic congressman from the Midwest, and a cop not quite right for the job.

The fun begins when the DC police and the FBI try to outdo each other in waging a war on vice. They set their sights on a classy, expensive call house occupying the top floor of an apartment building on ultra-respectable Connecticut Avenue.

C.P. Stiles' crisp writing and sharp eye for detail keep you smiling as you take in a Washington that never dreamed of today's scandals-but was on its way to them.
