The mystery bookstore (forget the actual name) was on Connecticut Ave a couple blocks above Dupont Circle. Most of the independents in and around DC are now gone. There are a couple of used bookstores with good mystery sections in the suburbs left, though: the Second Story Books warehouse in Rockville, MD, often has some good stuff, as does Wonder Books in Frederick. Wonder Books also recently took over the Book Alcove off Shady Grove Road in Gaithersburg. It seems to be in a sort of transitional phase at the moment, with the stock kind of stagnant during the switch, but if you haven't been there before you might find something you want.
