During the 1920s, the world's wealthiest people per capita were the Osage Indians of Oklahoma. Upon the discovery of oil underneath their lands, they built their own mansions, were driven around by chauffeurs in their own automobiles, and enrolled their children to expensive European schools. That is, until the richest of them were killed off one by one. It was evident that the primary target had been the family of one female Osage member named Mollie Burkhart—her sister was shot and her mother poisoned. The deaths in Mollie Burkhart's family mark the beginning of a series of gruesome murders, each Osage death just as suspicious as the last. Set in what remains of the Wild West—where oilmen like J. P. Getty himself had secured his immense fortune—those who had the guts to uncover the mysteries of the Osage murders had their fates sealed just as well. The FBI finally took over the case when the body count rose to over two dozen. The investigation was the Bureau's first big homicide case, and they had botched it well. Young J. Edgar Hoover was director at the time, and he was desperate. He sought the help of Tom White, a former Texas Ranger, to resolve the case once and for all. White assembled a team of undercover agents, including the Bureau's sole American Indian agent. The team infiltrated the county, knowing full well that being compromised will cost them their lives. White, the agents, and the Osage come together to reveal the truth behind one of America's most sordid conspiracies throughout history. Killers of the Flower Moon sheds light on the long-kept conspiracy that ordered the murder of more than two dozens of Osage members. David Grann's narrative nonfiction is based upon several years of deep research and shocking new evidence. Each piece of information throughout the Bureau's investigation is a step deeper into an intricate web of cover-ups. More importantly, Killers of the Flower Moon illustrates the prejudice and antipathy towards Native Americans which granted the murderers and conspirators impunity all those years ago—even up to this day. Wait no more, take action and get this book now!

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST "Disturbing and riveting...It will sear your soul." —Dave Eggers, New York Times Book Review SHELF AWARENESS'S BEST BOOK OF 2017 Named a best book of the year by Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, GQ, Time, Newsday, Entertainment Weekly, Time Magazine, NPR's Maureen Corrigan, NPR's "On Point," Vogue, Smithsonian, Cosmopolitan, Seattle Times, Bloomberg, Lit Hub's "Ultimate Best Books," Library Journal, Paste, Kirkus, Slate.com and Book Browse From New Yorker staff writer David Grann, #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Lost City of Z, a twisting, haunting true-life murder mystery about one of the most monstrous crimes in American history In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, they rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe. Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. The family of an Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, became a prime target. Her relatives were shot and poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more and more members of the tribe began to die under mysterious circumstances. In this last remnant of the Wild West—where oilmen like J. P. Getty made their fortunes and where desperadoes like Al Spencer, the “Phantom Terror,” roamed—many of those who dared to investigate the killings were themselves murdered. As the death toll climbed to more than twenty-four, the FBI took up the case. It was one of the organization’s first major homicide investigations and the bureau badly bungled the case. In desperation, the young director, J. Edgar Hoover, turned to a former Texas Ranger named Tom White to unravel the mystery. White put together an undercover team, including one of the only American Indian agents in the bureau. The agents infiltrated the region, struggling to adopt the latest techniques of detection. Together with the Osage they began to expose one of the most chilling conspiracies in American history. In Killers of the Flower Moon, David Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. Based on years of research and startling new evidence, the book is a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, as each step in the investigation reveals a series of sinister secrets and reversals. But more than that, it is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. Killers of the Flower Moon is utterly compelling, but also emotionally devastating.

Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann: Trivia Book Journalist David Grann recreates the events that tell how unsuspecting Osage families, the world's wealthiest in the 1920s, were murdered one by one by seemingly benevolent men who married into the family in order to inherit all the money gained from their land's oil deposits . Reported in the newspapers as the "Reign of Terror" or the "Osage Black Curse," Grann ties in the parallel story of how the modern FBI was created as a resulting effort to capture the murderers. What should interest us today, according to Grann, is how greed continues to threaten American Indian lives. Killers of the Flower Moon is one of Time magazine's 2017 top ten non-fiction books.
