Review

Praise for "Invisible City"
"A treat...Strong, blunt prose...a harrowing tale."--"The New York Times Book Review
"""Invisible City" is an absolutely crackling, unputdownable mystery told by a narrator with one big, booming voice. I loved it."--Gillian Flynn
"[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)

Praise for "Invisible City"

Dahl is an evocative writer, never more so than when she's describing the nascent yearnings of those younger members of [the ultra-Orthodox Jewish] community-gay, vaguely feminist, simply different-who can't quite fit in, but can't quite leave. "NPR Fresh Air on Run You Down"

Dahl's smart, twisty plot and suspenseful tone will grip mystery and thriller lovers until the final page. "Library Journal on Run You Down"

Written strongly, without pretense, this is much more than your run-of- the-mill crime novel...Full of suspense, this is an engrossing mystery fans will love. 4 stars. "RT Book Reviews on Run You Down"

Strong, blunt prose...a harrowing tale. "The New York Times Book Review on Invisible City"

"Invisible City" is an absolutely crackling, unputdownable mystery told by a narrator with one big, booming voice. I loved it. "Gillian Flynn on Invisible City"

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 on Invisible City"

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 on Invisible City""
