Staff Reviews

A true crime story that easily ranks with The Devil In the White City. When oil was discovered on lands deeded to the Osage Indian tribe in Oklahoma, people who previously existed in poverty suddenly found themselves millionaires. The newfound wealth also brought a particularly vicious criminal element into their midst and members of the Osage began dying with terrifying regularity. An extraordinary tale of unquenchable greed and pitiless evil.

— Alden Graves

Like his other book, Lost City of Z Killers of the Flower Moon reads like a novel and would make a great film. Set in the 1920s in the booming oil fields of Oklahoma,the people in this book read like noir characters, Oil barons, thieves,murderers, moonshiners and clean and dirty lawmen including J.Edgar Hoover, cowboys and the victims; (wealthy beyond belief) Native American Tribesmen of the Osage Nation. this is a riveting dark piece U.S. History. Brilliant!

The Osage Nation's great wealth precipitated a stupefying series of illnesses, disappearances, then outright poisonings, shootings, and bombings. The perniciousness of the perpetrators sank far lower than the oil which ultimately afforded the Nation not riches, but misery. — Mike Hare

“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.”
