My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Intrigues and murders, subtle and sly assailants from the top of society to the bottom! A whole "culture of killing" (308). David Grann has allowed this tale of terror to tell itself, giving the investigators their due, and then adding his own unveiling examinations. The story will leave you convinced that Calvin was not far off the mark when he described the fallen nature of humanity as total depravity.
I highly recommend the book because the story needs to be remembered for the sake of the violently victimized, and for the sake of the victimzers. I highly recommend the book because it is well written, and gives readers an excellent example of good writing. And I highly recommend the book to those who need to know more of Oklahoma history, or gain informative details about the birth of the Federal Bureau of Investigators (FBI).
