Killers of the Flower Moon, the Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann.
This nonfiction book revisits the shocking series of more than 24 murders of Osage
Indians in the 1920’s. At that time, the Osage were the richest people per capita in the
world because of the discovery of oil beneath their land. After allowing the murderers to
operate with impunity for a long time, the newly created F.B.I. took up the case, in what
became one of the organization’s first major homicide investigations. Under J. Edgar
Hoover’s direction, a former Texas Ranger put together an undercover team, including
one of the only Native American agents in the bureau to expose one of the most sinister
conspiracies in American history.
