A conspiracy aimed at eliminating the Osage people, viewed as intermediaries due to their oil wealth, unfolded systematically. While at least twenty wealthy Osage individuals were officially documented as victims, the author, Grann, suggests that the true number of killings, considering their connections to the oil industry, may be considerably higher.
The book extensively covers the investigation carried out by the recently established FBI into these murders, as well as the subsequent trial and conviction of William Hale, a prominent cattleman identified as the mastermind behind the conspiracy.

Killer of Flower Moon Review
The Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma has struck it rich with oil wealth, becoming multimillionaires. However, this newfound fortune also brings danger, as the history of the American West is marked by exploitation and violence.
The 1920s Osage murders, explored in David Grann’s nonfiction bestseller, revealed numerous unexplained deaths within the Osage community. Martin Scorsese’s film adaptation of the book brings this period to life, with Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, and Lily Gladstone delivering powerful performances.
Ernest Burkhart, returning from the war, seeks money, a fresh start, and a young wife. His uncle, William Hale, a wealthy cattle baron, provides him with all three. But greed drives them to marry Mollie, who possesses the valuable oil rights to her land. The arrangement raises questions about what Mollie gains from the union.
The film highlights the Osage’s precarious position, their need to maintain favor with their white patrons, and the challenges they face despite their riches. Mollie, in particular, faces health issues as a diabetic requiring insulin. Hale notes that Osage women rarely live long lives.
De Niro delivers a powerful performance as Uncle Bill Hale, combining folksy authority with a deceptive charm. Scorsese seamlessly incorporates his performance into the larger narrative, supported by strong portrayals from DiCaprio, Gladstone, and Jesse Plemons as a federal investigator.
Killer of Flower Moon Review Trailer
“Killers of the Flower Moon” is an epic film, Scorsese’s return to the Cannes film festival after nearly four decades. Though lengthy at 206 minutes, the movie moves deliberately without wasting a moment. It is a sinuous and old-school masterpiece, akin to a Steinbeck novel in its attention to detail and righteous anger.
Bill Hale, despite being implicated in the murders, presents himself as a caring figure for the Osage. He claims to love them, even as they suffer from alcoholism, depression, and land theft. However, his belief that their time is over and his reign has just begun reveals a darker truth.
The film weaves an alternative American creation myth, exposing the rot beneath the surface of the oil industry. “Killers of the Flower Moon” portrays a dark tragedy that reimagines the conquest of the West, where the barren grassland holds only crude oil, and the blood spilled plants the seeds of the future.
