Killers-of-the-flower-moon-book-cover“Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI” by David Grann
True Crime – 5 stars

A little-known case of mass murder from the 1920s highlights our country’s cruelty and indifference to American Indians. Relocated onto reservation lands that turn out to be rich with oil, hundreds of wealthy Osage are poisoned, shot, or burnt to death over the course of a decade known in Oklahoma as the Reign of Terror. The book alternately follows a family member of the victims, the FBI agent who investigates the crimes under the direction of J. Edgar Hoover, and the author himself who interviews descendants of the victims.
