Review

"An absolutely crackling, unputdownable mystery told by a narrator with one big, booming voice. I loved it."--GILLIAN FLYNN, #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of "Gone Girl

""A smart, tightly-wrought page turner and one of the finest depictions of beat journalism I've read. Dahl gives us a new hero in the guise of Rebekah Roberts--hard boiled girl reporter--who risks her life and career to uncover the truth about a murder in the cloistered community of Borough Park. Dahl is a master of pacing and suspense. This lucid, illuminating gem is an outstanding debut."--CARA HOFFMAN, author of "So Much Pretty

""Julia Dahl is a veteran reporter, and her debut novel reads like the work of a seasoned pro. She knows this world inside out, and the result is a tense tale written in prose that crackles and pops. I found the characters every bit as fascinating as the setting. This one's something special, as is the author. I'm eager for her follow-up."--STEVE YARBROUGH, award-winning author of "Safe From the Neighbors

""Thrilling, fun, smart and moving, "Invisible City" makes me proud and a little afraid to be a Jew living in Brooklyn. We need more reporters like Rebekah and more books about her from Julia Dahl. Hurry!"--DAVID GORDON, author of "The Serialist

""[An] impressive debut...Dahl's convincing dialogue and perfect pacing make for a real page-turner. And her storytelling skills illuminate the intriguing worlds of the tabloid press, Hasidism, the NYPD, and Brooklyn's 20-somethings--as well as the fragile boundaries of family, religion, and life itself."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

Product Description

Fresh out of journalism school, Rebekah Roberts is working for the New York Tribune, trying to make a name for herself. Assigned a story about the murder of a woman in Brooklyn, Rebekah finds a case from inside a closed, secretive Hasidic Jewish community - the same Brooklyn neighbourhood her estranged mother was brought up in.

Shocked to discover that the victim is set to be buried without an autopsy, Rebekah knows there is a story to uncover, but getting to the truth won't be easy - in the cloistered world her mother rebelled against, it's clear she's not welcome, and everyone she meets has a secret to keep, most of all from an outsider.
