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.

Thrilling and informative...
I thought this was a very good book, informative as well as a good mystery.
The publisher's summary sets up the story very well. That of a woman (Rebekah Roberts) technically Jewish by birth (Jewish mother) but raised in a Christian family. The other of a murdered Hasidic woman. Wealthy husband with quite a bit of pull in the community and in the police department where the Jewish vote for elected officials can either make or break an election. The woman's body is never even autopsied because the husband is against it. Her eight month old daughter dies mysteriously the previous year, ditto no autopsy.
Rebekah's mother was Hasidic but left when she was six months old. She has no clue how difficult it will be to get the people in this cloistered community to speak with her.
Andi Arndt does an excellent job narrating.
