Staff Reviews

There is sometimes no more amazing story than history. This one is about murder and greed; about noble men and villains.  It is a thriller. It is a page turner! The Osage Indians were fabulously wealthy because of their oil-rich land.  They were also being murdered because of it. Greed, corruption and bigotry ensured that little was done to find the murderers or stop the killings. It wasn't until the fledgling FBI's young director, J. Edgar Hoover, appointed a former Texas Ranger to the investigation that an honest and scientific effort was made to solve the crimes. Grann (author of Lost City of Z) knows how to tell a story and teach history at the same time.

May 2017 Indie Next List

“One of the most horrific chapters in American history is brought back to the national consciousness with alarming detail in Killers of the Flower Moon. After the Osage Indian Nation strikes oil, its members become rich beyond their wildest dreams, only to encounter a vast and murderous conspiracy that will leave more than 60 members of the nation dead. David Grann reconstructs those murders and the subsequent investigations with astonishing care and reveals the depths of a conspiracy that stretched from Oklahoma to Washington, D.C. This story will certainly be one of the most important books of 2017.”

Summer 2018 Reading Group Indie Next List

Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann (The Lost City of Z) is a page-turner that reveals a part of American history long forgotten. In the 1920s, the Osage Indians of Oklahoma were some of the wealthiest people in the world. They were also being poisoned and murdered. Grann covers all the sordid details, brings the principal characters to life, and just when you think it’s all figured out, reveals new information. It’s a compelling story of greed, betrayal, J. Edgar Hoover, the Wild West, and murder, still resonating with the Osage today.”
