Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI, is a true-crime tale that unravels one of the most sinister crimes and racial injustices in American history. With over 100 weeks on the New York Times nonfiction bestseller list, it was a finalist for the National Book Award and ranked #1 on both Shelf Awareness and Amazon’s Single Best Books of the Year. Now Read This, the joint book club between PBS NewsHour and New York Times, selected Killers of the Flower Moon for their February 2018 read. Following a highly publicized bidding war for the film rights, Killers of the Flower Moon debuted at Cannes in 2023, with Martin Scorsese as director and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. The news of the movie combined with the popularity of his latest book, The Wager, brought Killers back to the New York Times bestseller list.
