I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.

KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON: THE OSAGE MURDERS AND THE BIRTH OF THE FBI by David Grann

Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI - David Grann

Interesting book on an event that is never taught in school.  I especially liked when the investigation is taken over by the FBI.  I was appalled by the murders.  The Osage were intelligent when negotiating with the government and got the mineral rights to their lands.  White man greed once again destroys lives and the Osage community because of oil.  I also liked the last part as the reporter is going over the story and discovers that the four years of terror started long before those years and lasted longer with many more men and women who should have been arrested and prosecuted.  Mr. Grann put a human face to the people whose lives were affected and the actions of those who were to protect the Osage cannot be justified.  Shameful!  A good read.
