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.

Great history lesson told in an easy to read and follow manner. ( )

Book club read. Something of a “who dun it?” concerning the treatment of Osage tribe in 1920s. ( )

I rarely read non-fiction as I find it too dry and factual, but I quite enjoyed this book, especially the first two chronicles. The first focused on the Osage murders while the second followed Texas ranger, Tom White, and his team as they tried to find the killers. However, the third chronicle lost me totally and I skimmed most of it.

I was appalled at the treatment of the Osage tribe at the hands of white Americans. The extent they went to to feed their greed and racism was truly horrific. The fact that doctors and lawmen were involved just made it so much worse. What humans will do to other humans for the sake of wealth always leaves me feeling nauseous.

The subject of "Killers of the Flower Moon" was an important one and the material was there to make this a gripping read but the author didn't deliver. Sadly, I think this will be one occasion where the movie will be better than the book. ( )

David Grann does a commendable job in bringing forth the story of the Osage and the suffering they endured by linking the stories of the perpetrators and the victims well and tying them up nicely with the investigations that followed. It also gives a nice insight into the formative years of FBI, and sheds light on the diligence with which the investigative team solved this seemingly unsolvable case.

As excellent as it is as a collection of facts and word of mouth passed through generations, it is neither too focused on the Osage, nor is it focused solely on the FBI investigation in the case, which makes it somewhat of a hybrid. It is a book that should be read by everyone, as it contributes towards the preservation of history, but it isn't likely to] leave a lasting impression on the reader once it's finished. ( )

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.
