"The best book of the year so far."
"Disturbing and riveting. . . . Grann has proved himself a
master of spinning delicious, many-layered mysteries that also
happen to be true. . . . It will sear your soul."
--Dave Eggers, New York Times Book Review
"A marvel of detective-like research and narrative verve."
--Financial Times "A shocking whodunit. . . . What more could fans of true-crime thrillers ask?"
--USA Today "A master of the detective form. . . . Killers is something rather deep and not easily forgotten."
--Wall St. Journal "David Grann's Killers of the Flower Moon is unsurprisingly extraordinary."
--Time "A masterful work of literary journalism crafted with the urgency of a mystery. . . . Contained within Grann's mesmerizing storytelling lies something more than a brisk, satisfying read. Killers of the Flower Moon offers up the Osage killings as emblematic of America's relationship with its indigenous peoples and the 'culture of killing' that has forever marred that tie."
--The Boston Globe "[C]lose to impeccable. It's confident, fluid in its dynamics, light on its feet. . . . The crime story it tells is appalling, and stocked with authentic heroes and villains. It will make you cringe at man's inhumanity to man."
--The New York Times New York Times bestseller (April 2018)
