In the 1870's the US government drove the Osage Indian tribe off their land to a small reservation in Oklahoma.
Fast forward to 1920 and the Osage were some of the richest people in the world once oil was discovered on their land. However, it wasn't long before members of the tribe were ending up dead. Some had been poisoned, murdered and others dead under mysterious circumstances. Those who attempted to investigate also found their lives cut short. When over 20 members were killed, the newly formed FBI took matters into their own hands. The FBI uncovered until a conspiracy of vast proportion which revealed coverups, greed and other injustices done to members of the Osage tribe.
A moving, chilling, eye opening, well-written story that will stick with. The audio book was well done and narrated by Will Patton..
Rating - 4/5 stars
