During the 1920s in Oklahoma, a number of untimely and suspicious deaths happened to the members of the oil-wealthy Osage Nation. These widespread crimes exposed the inability of the authorities to identify the ones responsible. These led to the establishment of the FBI. Author of the bestselling book The Lost City of Z, David Grann writes a complex story of the web of deception and violence that focused on one Osage woman – Mollie Burkhart. Her family members were murdered one after the other.
