**SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY MARTIN SCORSESE STARRING LEONARDO DICAPRIO**


A riveting true story of greed, serial murder and racial injustice’ JON KRAKAUER
A fiercely entertaining mystery story and a wrenching exploration of evil’ KATE ATKINSON
A fascinating account of a tragic and forgotten chapter in the history of the American West’ JOHN GRISHAM  

From the bestselling author of The Lost City of Z, now a major film starring Charlie Hunnam, Sienna Miller and Robert Pattison, comes a true-life murder story which became one of the FBI’s first major homicide investigations. 

In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, they 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. As the death toll climbed, the FBI took up the case. But the bureau badly bungled the investigation. In desperation, its young director, J. Edgar Hoover, turned to a former Texas Ranger named Tom White to unravel the mystery. Together with the Osage he and his undercover team began to expose one of the most chilling conspiracies in American history
 
David Grann has a razor-keen instinct for suspense’ LOUISE ERDRICH

Review:

A fascinating account of a tragic and forgotten chapter in the history of the American West. This powerful story reveals the unimaginable scale of these shocking murders almost a hundred years ago’ (John Grisham)

A magnificent book – a riveting true story of greed, serial murder and racial injustice. David Grann is a terrific journalist, and this is maybe the best thing he’s ever written’ (Jon Krakauer)

Killers of the Flower Moon brings shattering resolve to a story that resonates now.  As Native Americans fighting to protect resources on the remnants of our lands, we confront the same paternalism, hypocrisy, and greed that destroyed Osage lives and culture in the early 1920's.  David Grann has a razor keen instinct for suspense.  He shapes outrage into a principled steady insistence that voice be given to the victims and their descendants.  He creates deeply human portraits of every character in this drama -- the evil, the just, the innocent, the doomed.  Through meticulous detective work, Grann rescues unbearable truth.’ (Louise Erdrich)

‘If Killers of the Flower Moon were a novel, one would marvel at David Grann’s skill in constructing such a taut, driving narrative with so many stunning plot twists. But it is a true story, based on years of meticulous reporting, making the book both a fiercely entertaining mystery story and a wrenching exploration of evil.’ (Kate Atkinson)
