You might already know David Grann from the New Yorker or the The Lost City of Z, but chances are, you now know him as the bestselling author of Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, which debuted at #3 on the New York Times bestsellers list.
Tracing the 1920s murders of Osage Native Americans targeted for their oil wealth, Killers of the Flower Moon is a true-crime mystery that reveals one of the most overlooked chapters in modern American history and connects to the current Native American fight for control over their own land and resources.
“Disturbing and riveting,” wrote author Dave Eggers in The New York Times Book Review. “Grann has proved himself a master of spinning delicious, many-layered mysteries that also happen to be true.”
Known for his uncanny ability to find thrillers from mere footnotes, Grann is unmatched at bringing attention and relevance to a history that is still unfolding. Of his in-depth writing process, Grann says, “One of the reasons the book took close to five years was to be able to unearth as much evidence – to give as good and detailed a record…to make sure the voices of the victims were recorded.”
David Grann’s reputation for uncovering stories that are utterly compelling and completely true has attracted legions of fans and devoted readers. His #1 New York Times bestseller The Lost City of Z is now a major motion picture of the same name, while Killers of the Flower Moon is already slated for a film adaption by Eric Roth.
“This is a remarkable and, indeed, unprecedented moment in American history. Donald Trump is a unique figure, one whose presidency will shape the nation – and the world – for generations.
What does he know? How does he think? How does he make decisions? What does the past tell us? These are key, urgent, consuming questions.”– Jon Meacham
