NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST • NATIONAL BESTSELLER • A twisting, haunting true-life murder mystery about one of the most monstrous crimes in American history, from the author of The Lost City of Z. 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.

Summary of Killers of the Flower Moon David Grann’s Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI recounts how Tom White, an FBI investigator, straddled the divide between the old Wild West-style law enforcement and its new Progressivism movement predicated on rational, evidence-based, scientific investigation. In Osage County, Oklahoma, Tom White is tasked with solving the Osage murders case, in which twenty-four Osage individuals were suspected of being murdered, but nobody could figure out who or why these killings were happening. The case was four years old, and the Bureau of Investigation—still in its early years, and later transformed into the FBI—was under a lot of pressure to solve it, especially with a new, ambitious director named J. Edgar Hoover at the helm. He would go on to preside as director of the FBI (and Bureau of Investigation) for forty-eight years. At the time, however, Hoover was anxious to solve this troubling case and used its success as a springboard toward launching the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s genesis myth. Tom White leads a team of undercover agents into Osage County, carefully eliminating suspects and probing witnesses until he discovers that William K. Hale, the “King of the Osage Hills,” is pulling countless local strings to deviate the investigation away from him. What follows is a breathtaking account of a true story filled with corruption and crime—a raw story of how law enforcement can bring out the rawness and depth of (in)humanity.

During the 1920s, the world's wealthiest people per capita were the Osage Indians of Oklahoma. Upon the discovery of oil underneath their lands, they built their own mansions, were driven around by chauffeurs in their own automobiles, and enrolled their children to expensive European schools. That is, until the richest of them were killed off one by one. It was evident that the primary target had been the family of one female Osage member named Mollie Burkhart—her sister was shot and her mother poisoned. The deaths in Mollie Burkhart's family mark the beginning of a series of gruesome murders, each Osage death just as suspicious as the last. Set in what remains of the Wild West—where oilmen like J. P. Getty himself had secured his immense fortune—those who had the guts to uncover the mysteries of the Osage murders had their fates sealed just as well. The FBI finally took over the case when the body count rose to over two dozen. The investigation was the Bureau's first big homicide case, and they had botched it well. Young J. Edgar Hoover was director at the time, and he was desperate. He sought the help of Tom White, a former Texas Ranger, to resolve the case once and for all. White assembled a team of undercover agents, including the Bureau's sole American Indian agent. The team infiltrated the county, knowing full well that being compromised will cost them their lives. White, the agents, and the Osage come together to reveal the truth behind one of America's most sordid conspiracies throughout history. Killers of the Flower Moon sheds light on the long-kept conspiracy that ordered the murder of more than two dozens of Osage members. David Grann's narrative nonfiction is based upon several years of deep research and shocking new evidence. Each piece of information throughout the Bureau's investigation is a step deeper into an intricate web of cover-ups. More importantly, Killers of the Flower Moon illustrates the prejudice and antipathy towards Native Americans which granted the murderers and conspirators impunity all those years ago—even up to this day. Wait no more, take action and get this book now!

The New York Times bestseller and National Book Award finalist Killers of the Flower Moon is now adapted for young readers. This book is an essential resource for young readers to learn about the Reign of Terror against the Osage people--one of history's most ruthless and shocking crimes. In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Nation in Oklahoma, thanks to the oil that was discovered beneath their land. Then, one by one, the Osage began to die under mysterious circumstances, and anyone who tried to investigate met the same end. As the death toll surpassed more than twenty-four Osage, the newly created Bureau of Investigation, which became the FBI, took up the case, one of the organization's first major homicide investigations. An undercover team, including one of the only Native American agents in the bureau, infiltrated the region, struggling to adopt the latest modern techniques of detection. Working with the Osage, they began to expose one of the most chilling conspiracies in American history. In this adaptation of the adult bestseller, David Grann revisits his gripping investigation into the shocking crimes against the Osage people. The book is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward Native Americans that allowed the murderers to occur for so long.

PLEASE READ THIS BOOK TO SAVE THE HUMAN RACE. PASS IT ON TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW. WE, THE PEOPLE, DO NOT HAVE TO LET THE HUMAN RACE BE DESTROYED. I WROTE THIS BOOK TO PREVENT ANY MORE: SHUTDOWNS, SHOOTING RAMPAGES OR VIRUSES. WE HAVE A CHANCE TO SAVE THE HUMAN RACE BEFORE THEY CAUSE ARMAGEDDON. PLEASE HURRY AND TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THE SALE OF MY BOOK BEFORE THEY KILL ONE MORE KID JUST TO STEAL FROM ME. PROSTITUTES FROM SOUTH AMERICA ARE NOT ALLOWED TO "RAPE AND ROB" OTHER WOMEN'S HUSBANDS AND THEY WILL NEVER BE ALLOWED TO STEAL FROM ITALIAN GIRLS! [When prostitutes from South America have sex with other women's husbands, it causes viruses to be created because God has already designed the Italian "Romeo" (11-11-74) to be with his Italian "Juliet" (11-14-74).] This book explains why God created the human race and what God intended for all of us. It is very important for the future of all generations, so they know and understand, why their loved ones died from the "affliction to the human race" as a result of the: injustices, abuses, bank robberies, damages, terrorist attacks, guerrilla warfare attacks, injuries, adultery and group sex orgies with South American kids from 2018-2021--on behalf of the: evil, lying, thieving Morrone family who "raped and robbed" DiCaprio (11-11-74) to steal from Calabrese (11-14-74). I also wrote this book to teach Leo DiCaprio about the meaning of "DOUBLE DATES" and how if any lies are told about them, brain damages in young girls could happen as a result of lies about double dates. I was forced to write this book as a result of leg amputations happening to young girls as a result of: lying, thieving, Nazi fascist pigs and the Charles Manson followers who stole from me (who were so evil they would cut the fetus from Sharon Tate just to steal from me) to aid and abet guerrilla warfare attacks on our county. (DICAPRIO, STOP BEING A DISHONEST, NAZI FASCIST PIG, AND LEARN TO HAVE SOME HUMAN DECENCY FOR REASONS OF PUBLIC SAFETY! I LOVE YOU, AND I'M HERE TO HELP YOU DEFEND US FROM RAPISTS, MURDERERS, BANK ROBBERS, BUT YOU HAVE TO STOP LYING AND STEALING FROM ME! YOU ALSO HAVE TO STOP LETTING THEM STEAL FROM ME. GOD DID NOT PUT ME ON THIS EARTH TO BE A VICTIM OF YOUR CONSTANT: THREATS, INJURIES AND BANK ROBBERIES JUST BECAUSE I'M TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT SOMETHING...FOR THE PUBLIC SAFETY OF EVERYONE!) Dear Google, thank you for letting me publish this book. My little brother was just murdered because we were abused so badly by Martin Scorsese during the making of Apple TV+ 's "Killers of the Flower Moon".
