I was ecstatic to hear Maureen Corrigan recommend RUN YOU DOWN as one of 4 thrillers to read this summer:
“…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] religious community — gay, vaguely feminist, simply different — who can’t quite fit in, but can’t quite leave.”

I am thrilled to report that “Invisible City” received a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly this week.
An excerpt: “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. ”
