David Grann, New Yorker staff writer and author of The Lost City of Z, discusses his new book, the bestseller Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, a twisting, haunting true-life murder mystery about one of the most monstrous crimes in American history. Based on years of research and startling new evidence, the book is a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, as each step in the investigation reveals a series of sinister secrets and reversals. But more than that, it is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. Grann will be interviewed by OPB’s Geoff Norcross.
