In the 1920s the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, they rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe. Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. The family of an Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, became a prime target. Her relatives were shot and poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more and more members of the tribe began to die under mysterious circumstances.

I enjoyed the first and last narrators of this book, but the first Male narrator was overly dramatic and talked in a way that made it difficult to understand what he was saying. I'm not sure if he was trying to play a part with his "accent" or if that's just the way he talks, but he was very difficult to understand.

This is a very enjoyable story, with an excellent narration.
It is very well done, and shares a beautiful message that can be remembered throughout the Christmas season, and all year long.

Weaving together historical examples, scientific studies, and compelling court cases - from the border collie put on trial in Kentucky to the five teenagers who falsely confessed in the Central Park Jogger case - Benforado shows how our judicial processes fail to uphold our values and protect society's weakest members. With clarity and passion, he lays out the scope of the problem and proposes a wealth of reforms that could prevent injustice and help us achieve true fairness and equality before the law.
