This audiobook will cause listeners to rethink everything they know about oil, the settlement of the West, and our nation's treatment of Native Americans. The work is so rich that it takes three people to perform it. While Ann Marie Lee has a lovely voice, it's too light for the horror she recounts--the murder of dozens of Osage Indians in the 1920s for the purpose of obtaining rights to their oil-rich land in Oklahoma. Will Patton and Danny Campbell, who mainly narrate the investigation by the nascent FBI and the subsequent trial, sound grim and gritty, as befits the story. It's amazing how much history and horror fills this book. Together, the narrators' deliveries are powerful, making it a story listeners will never forget.
