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)
"This novel is particularly notable for its combination of a skillfully wrought, increasingly suspenseful mystery populated by well-drawn characters and a deeply sympathetic understanding of a contemporary culture that remains insular for its own understandable reasons. Journalist Dahl's debut sets a high bar."--"Booklist
""Dahl scores a solid

Strong, blunt prose...a harrowing tale. "The New York Times Book 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"

[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)"

Fast-paced, suspenseful...["Invisible City"] rises above the crime-novel genre in its unusual psychological, spiritual and sociological dimensions, entering a world unfamiliar to most people. "The Washington Post"

Bringing together the hyenas of tabloid journalism with the secretive, inwardly focused, self-protecting religious Jews, Dahl manages to demonize and humanize both, while delivering a riveting story. I sincerely hope there will be a sequel because after reading the last page, I wanted to know: What happens next? "The Boston Globe"

Masterly, pitch-perfect. "Haaretz"

Surprising and uncompromising This is riveting stuff indeed, and Dahl is a major talent. "BookPage""
