History. True Crime. Nonfiction. HTML: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.

Killers of the Flower Moon is a very droll book. It is the kind of book that works best as an audiobook. The native Americans suffered terrible hardships and death by self-serving, self-justifying people with no help. The thing that is most annoying about the book is that the story just ended. The author did not offer any help to the family members of the murdered people. With all of the research he did, couldn't the author have found some resources for the family members of the wrongfully killed? What was the point of just ending the book? This review is not reviewing the people, it is a review of the book and the writing. Consequently only three stars were given to this book. ( )

The Osage story has received considerable attention thanks to David Grann's book and Martin Scorsese's movie. It's a story that deserves it, and that deserves to be told well. I can't speak to the movie I haven't seen but this book was an engaging read. It is half a horror story of racism perpetrated by immoral white people in power, and half a crime investigation story against powerful odds that formed an early case in the history of the FBI (but not their first case, as the subtitle implies). Grann diligently assembled content worthy of the best of the genre, but with some awkwardness. His personal story is reserved for the end rather than weaving it in as he goes along, with surprise twists that shouldn't have been held back that long. Key figures are referred to in ways such as 'the agent who posed as an insurance man' and mentioned multiple times without proper names, but he clearly shares those in the endnotes. These and other presentation and expression choices occasionally get in the way. Fortunately the facts being shared override them.

The investigation story (which could only tackle a small proportion of the total murders) threatens to override the more important story of the tribe and the wrong that it suffered. Grann brings it full circle back to the tribe again and ends on the right note, though I think it needed at least one more chapter to zoom out even further - away from the Burkharts, away from the Osage and Oklahoma, to remind us that the abuses which happened here are not an anomaly in North American history. It also doesn't address the obvious question, was the oil a blessing or a curse? ( )

Such an interesting read. The Osage were treated so terribly, and sad that we learned so little about it in Oklahoma schools. Hoping that’s changed. Looking forward to seeing how they make this one into a movie! ( )

4.5. This should be read in every school. ( )

De maand van de bloemendoder is een fascinerend en tegelijkertijd gruwelijk boek over de moordpartijen, discriminatie en uitbuiting van Osage indianen aan het begin van de 20e eeuw in Oklahoma. Nadat de Osage, zoals zoveel indianen in de Verenigde Staten, waren verjaagd naar een reservaat in Oklahoma, bleek hier olie gevonden te worden. Hierdoor werden de Osage opeens rijk. Echter dit betekende ook uitbuiting, discriminatie en vele moordpartijen. David Grann is jarenlang bezig geweest met onderzoek naar misstanden die plaatsvonden en De maand van de bloemendoder is het zeer boeiende eindresultaat hiervan...lees verder >

There had been no evil to mar that propitious night, because she had listened; there had been no voice of evil; no screech owl had quaveringly disturbed the stillness. She knew this because she had listened all night.
—John Joseph Mathews, Sundown
A conspiracy is everything that ordinary life is not. It's the inside game, cold, sure, undistracted, forever closed off to us. We are the flawed ones, the innocents, trying to make some rough sense of the daily jostle. Conspirators have a logic and a daring beyond our reach. All conspiracies are the same taut story of men who find coherence in some criminal act.  —Don DeLillo, Libra
We have a few mouth-to-mouth tales; we exhume from old trunks and boxes and drawers letters without salutation or signature, in which men and women who once lived and breathed are now merely initials or nicknames out of some now incomprehensible affection which sound to us like Sanskrit or Chocktaw; we see dimly people, the people in whose living blood and seed we ourselves lay dormant and waiting, in this shadowy attenuation of time possessing now heroic proportions performing their acts of simple passion and simple violence, impervious to time and inexplicable. —William Faulker, Absalom, Absalom!

Perhaps because he witnessed this—and other executions—or perhaps because he had seen the effect of the ordeal on his father, or perhaps because he feared the system could doom an innocent man, Tom grew to oppose what was then sometimes called “judicial homicide.” And he came to see the law as a struggle to subdue the violent passions not only in others but also in oneself.
