NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST
From the #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 Nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, the Osage 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. One of her relatives was shot. Another was poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more and more Osage were dying under mysterious circumstances, and many of those who dared to investigate the killings were themselves murdered.

As the death toll rose, the newly created FBI took up the case, and the young director, J. Edgar Hoover, turned to a former Texas Ranger named Tom White to try to unravel the mystery. White put together an undercover team, including a Native American agent who infiltrated the region, and together with the Osage began to expose one of the most chilling conspiracies in American history.

This is a fascinating book about how the Osage Indians were torn apart when oil was discovered on their land, and the start of the FBI. Highly recommended.
FWIW, Killers of the Flower Moon is currently being made into a movie by director Martin Scorsese with Robert De Niro & Leonardo DiCaprio

Echoing previous comments, this book was really good. The author has written some other books worth checking out too.

So I haven't read the book, but the audiobook is one of the best I have ever listened to in both the fiction and nonfiction categories. This is a narritive nonfiction masterpiece.

I'll get downvoted but this is such an overrated book. Is it worth picking up for $2.00 yes. Is it particularly compelling? No. It was missing something. There was no intrigue and it just wrapped up all of a sudden. It's getting buzz since Scorsese and DiCaprio are attached to it and it will likely he made into a better motion picture. It was quite a boring read.

That's an interesting opinion, no downvote from me. I watched an interview with the author on a late show around five years ago and was interested because I'm from Oklahoma. This was well before I had heard it was going to be made into a movie. I've read or listened to many nonfiction books over the last 25 years and I thought this one was told in a very captivating way. I would love to read any nonfiction that you would recommend. For instance, I am planning on reading Destiny of the Republic because I've heard it was very well written. I might just be underexposed because I steered towards fiction after highschool due to all of the dry nonfiction I had to read in school.

Agree. I listened to the audiobook on Libby and it was great.

Thanks, OP!
Saving this post with a TU & Rep, for a time when I don't have so many other books on my shelf. Of course, by the time I get to this, the movie will be out!
