Publisher's Summary

Just months after Rebekah Roberts was born, her mother, an Hasidic Jew from Brooklyn, abandoned her Christian boyfriend and newborn baby to return to her religion. Neither Rebekah nor her father have heard from her since. Now a recent college graduate, Rebekah has moved to New York City to follow her dream of becoming a big-city reporter. But she’s also drawn to the idea of being closer to her mother, who might still be living in the Hasidic community in Brooklyn.

Then Rebekah is called to cover the story of a murdered Hasidic woman. Rebekah’s shocked to learn that, because of the NYPD’s habit of kowtowing to the powerful ultra-Orthodox community, not only will the woman be buried without an autopsy, her killer may get away with murder. Rebekah can’t let the story end there. But getting to the truth won’t be easy - even as she immerses herself in the cloistered world where her mother grew up, it's clear that she's not welcome, and everyone she meets has a secret to keep from an outsider.In her riveting debut Invisible City, journalist Julia Dahl introduces a compelling new character in search of the truth about a murder and an understanding of her own heritage.

    Story
    "It was an Interesting Idea"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Depends. The idea of the book was great. The Orthodox Jews live in a world apart from the modern world & the idea of peeking in was very intriguing. But the book doesn't really develop that look into the closed community. It's all about a woman abandoned by a mother from that world instead.


    Could you see Invisible City being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I can see it being made into a two hour special. There's just not enough story to develop it into a series.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a bad read, just a rather ordinary read. Good idea but not developed enough & not enough of a look into the Hidden World.
