This shocking true crime narrative centers on a spree of horrific murders committed against people of the Osage First Nation in Oklahoma in the 1920s, soon after the members of the Nation had become wealthy from oil pay-outs on their reservation lands. David Grann strives to untangle the complicated murder plot that led to over 20 deaths and tore apart countless families. The revelations in the final chapters are jaw-dropping and will make you wonder why you never heard this story before now. This is a gripping book, full of real-life personalities and conflicts you'll remember long after you've turned the final page.
