I am glad the Osage people's story is being told as it is horrifying and heartbreaking - I thought this would be more of a 'mystery' type of suspense novel, but the sad truth is that these murders were not cleverly done or covered up - the cover up was just in the absolute lack of carrying out of justice by the white-powered system for the Osage nation. As interesting as this story was though, I, the writing of the book was not as gripping as it could/should have been - so less than 3 star writing for a 5 star time story.

A very descriptive, almost novelistic recounting of the Osage murders. Emotional and harrowing; the perpetrators would befriend and even marry their victims, have full lives with them. Have and raise children with husbands and wives they would slowly poison. I always hestitate when 'evil' is portrayed as this extraordinary, and unfathomable course of action that is outside true human experience. It isn't 'other'; it is all too ordinary. Monsters don't perpetuate evil, people do. And stories like this one hammer home the lengths people will go to for the sake of their greed and ambition.
