Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A twisting, haunting true-life murder mystery about one of the most monstrous crimes in American history, from the author of The Wager and The Lost City of Z, “one of the preeminent adventure and true-crime writers working today."—New York Magazine • NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

“A shocking whodunit…What more could fans of true-crime thrillers ask?”—
USA Today

“A masterful work of literary journalism crafted with the urgency of a mystery.” —
The Boston Globe

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.

A real drag

I found this book to be a major task to be accomplished. The underlying story is of considerable interest but what kills this book, is it's narration. Ann Marie Lee is to be sure a master of the spoken word but the story is told as though she is a librarian reading to a group of sixth graders. To ensure that this was not an unfair assessment, I asked my wife to listen for a few minutes. That was more than enough. Eventually I skipped through that portion of the book but found that the next narrator (Danny Campbell) had taken a 180 degree approach to Ann Marie and was painfully overacting. Alas, life is to short for a book such as this. Hello Audible, this is comin' right back at ya!

Remarkable, Genocide For Hire

Research detail presented thoroughly and factually. Becoming apparent the duration and depth to which killers and accomplices clouded.

Oh my goodness....

I really, really, really tried to get through this - I'm very interested in the topic and I know this book had a wealth of information but the narration is horrendous. The majority of the beginning felt like story time in kindergarten and then the abrupt switch to another narrator surprised me and I really couldn't understand the point of that - his narration was extreme in the other direction. I just can't finish this book.....still trying to figure out how to return it.....

Definitely worth a listen

I think this book leans more to the FBI and the investigative side of things, than it does to the Indigenous people’s history and giving voice to their experiences then and now. Things like referring to residential schools as ‘boarding schools’ or leaving out the fact that a lot of Osage Head Rights belong to non-Osage descendants now and the convoluted legal barriers that prevent those rights from being returned to the Osage nation make it more about the FBI and the failures of the investigation than anything else. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, I just think people should be aware of that going in.

Will Patton is an amazing narrator. Danny Campbell was great too. Ann Marie Lee I did not enjoy because no white woman should a) be saying the n-word, period; nor b) should she be saying it in a casual, almost perky tone. As a Black woman, I found it jarring and it really made me almost stop listening.

I think the story does lose something by not being told from an Indigenous perspective, but it does seem well-researched and the final section does offer a bit of insight from current tribe members and descendants which was impactful.

Osage History that Must Not be Forgotten

A well researched and well documented history of the murders and terrible mistreatment of the Osage First Nations about a century ago. It is still not known how many Osage were murdered for their wealth. Corrupt members of the government, law enforcement, judiciary and community were involved in the killings and in covering them up. Honest and upright FBI investigators like Warden White were never given credit for unearthing the truth. The American past holds many dark moments and they should be acknowledged so a realistic version of past history is passed on.
An important book to read.

Sooo Dull

This was so boring: I could not finish. It reads like a combination of a newspaper article and a high school descriptive writing assignment. The topic had such potential, but the story did not deliver, and the monotone narration did not help.

U.S.A. -What’s so Great?

David Grann draws back the thick curtains that have for so long covered the terrible crimes, coverups and injustices done to the Osage people during the early part of the last century. America is not the land where dreams can be pursued and realized by anyone- in the case of the Osage, the Federal Government and the FBI and other levels of law enforcement did not do the events Grann chronicles justice. This is a very revealing read of what goes on when a minority is marginalized and then exploited. As we see with American’s current administration, not much has changed. Excellent read.

Boring performance

Performance is so boring, only one person talking in same tone, same voice and she reads it all the same
It’s not a novel feels more like biography

Tragic True Story

I liked the performance…it was straightforward and very easy to understand….especially important with a book such as this.

The story is even more tragic in the knowledge that it is true.

Excellent story.

I especially liked the final few chapters about the investigation and the writing of the book.
