Five great true crime reads

The Amazon Books editors tagged five top true crime reads, including:
Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann

Books are having a moment on the big screen—and Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of David Grann’s best-selling Killers of the Flower Moon is one of the most hyped adaptations of the year. We named this title one of the Best Books of 2017 when it first published, and there’s no better time to dive back into Grann’s heart-pounding narrative nonfiction about the murders that took place on the Osage Nation and spawned the young J. Edgar Hoover to action. It’s a gritty and pacey read, so we can only imagine what the movie will yield.
