In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian Nation. After oil was discovered beneath their land, the Osage rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe. Then they began to die mysteriously, as did anyone who tried to investigate. In this riveting best-seller, author David Grann tells how the travesties and tragedies unfolding in Oklahoma coincided with the rise of the ambitious J. Edgar Hoover and the new Federal Bureau of Investigation.
