In the 1920s, the wealthiest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Nation in Oklahoma. Soon after oil was discovered beneath tribal lands they began to be killed off. When local and state law enforcement could not stop the murders, J. Edgar Hoover and his young Bureau of Investigation took over the case. The book is a New York Times best seller, and soon to be a major motion picture. (Source: Amazon)
