‘An absolutely crackling, unputdownable mystery. I loved it.’ GILLIAN FLYNN
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.
The first instalment in a Brooklyn-set series featuring rookie crime reporter Rebekah Roberts... a smart, moving and enormously promising debut.
Magnificent story-telling set against the backdrop of a closed, secretive community of Hasidic Jews ion Brooklyn.
Ms. Dahl’s take on the chasidic world Rebekah encounters is open-hearted and sympathetic.
A gripping introduction to a series set among the Hasidic Jewish community of Brooklyn, New York. Not only is it a compelling murder mystery, but a fascinating glimpse into a secretive and little-known society.
