The author of Z, the lost city, David Grann, returns with an exciting True Crime that reveals one of the most monstrous conspiracies in the history of the United States. Best Seller of The New York Times, best book of 2017 according to Amazon and Winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Fact Crime. In the 1920s, the Osage Indian community in Oklahoma was the highest income per capita population in the world. The oil that lay beneath their property made them millionaires: they built mansions, they had private drivers and they sent their children to study in Europe. But a spiral of violence ravaged this indigenous community when its members began to die and disappear in strange circumstances. The family of a woman Osage, Mollie Burkhart, became a main objective. His three sisters were murdered. One was poisoned, another was shot dead and the third died in an explosion. Other members of the Osage died in mysterious circumstances, and many of those who dared to investigate the crimes were also killed. When the death toll reached twenty-four, the newly inaugurated FBI decided to intervene and was one of his first major cases of homicide. After the investigation turned out to be a disaster, the young director J. Edgar Hoover went to the former Texas commander, Tom White, to unravel the mystery. White established an infiltrated team, including a native agent in the group. In this exciting true crime, which Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio will take to the big screen, new secrets of one of the most sinister conspiracies against the indigenous community of the United States are revealed. As he did in Z, the lost city, Grann is immersed in a deep and exhaustive research to unveil one of the darkest and most ruthless episodes of American history. The critics have said: The murderers of the moon is a magnificent book, a captivating real story of greed, serial murders and racial injustice [...]. David Grann is an extraordinary journalist, and this work is perhaps the best he has written. Jon Krakauer Disturbing and fascinating [...] will burn your soul. Dave Eggers, The New York Times Book Review A masterful work of literary journalism. The Boston Globe The criminal story it tells is atrocious and replete with real heroes and villains. It will make you shudder at the inhumanity of man towards his fellows. Dwight Garner, The New York Times An incredible story, exciting and impossible to leave, written by an author whose mysteries based on real events always go beyond what the reader expects. The Paris Review As a master of detective history, Grann knows how to save the best for last. It is there where his meticulous, patient and detailed investigation finally penetrates the haze of lies and compromising evidence to reach the solid territory of truth. The Wall Street Journal
