Our Next Selection is "Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI" by David Grann.
In Killers of the Flower Moon, David Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of members of the Osage tribe were murdered in cold blood. It is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long.
