a thrilling, fast-paced cyber-crime mystery

Brody Taylor is a security consultant and expert hacker who becomes involved in "researching" a webcam based "service" that seems to broadcast live feeds from people's homes and businesses without their knowledge. When Brody realizes that this Internet site may be connected to a girl's death, he inserts himself in the investigation and teams up with Detective Jenny Price who is hunting a serial killer who is raping and murdering young females.

It took me a little bit to get into this story due to the different perspectives at the beginning, but when the action took off, the plot became really engrossing and I was truly captivated. It was a very clever mix of techno-thriller and crime procedural full of mystery and suspense. The author did a great job explaining all the computer hacking related stuff, and while I'm not knowledgeable enough to comment on how accurate any of it was, it all made sense to me, so I could follow the plot without any issues, and it provided quite a unique, fascinating story line.

Written from multiple perspectives, including the killer's, this was a thrilling, fast-paced cyber-crime mystery with characters you wanted to get to know more about. Brody especially was great with his unorthodox methods in order to achieve legitimate outcomes. I would certainly like to see him and Detective Price in a sequel.

Matthew Lloyd Davies with his very smooth sounding voice provided an excellent, very natural narration with enough distinction between the characters that you always knew who was speaking. Great accents that were just right for the characters portrayed. I could quite happily listen to him narrate a much longer audiobook. There were no issues with the production.

Fantastic modern day thriller

Would you consider the audio edition of Invasion of Privacy to be better than the print version?

I'm new to audio books, so don't have much history, but have been so busy and unable to sit down for lengths of time to read, so I thought why not listen to one and I was so pleased I did. Audio lets me skip back a few moments to pick up where I was, or if I missed something and it was such a great thing to do, I'm not sure how I'll pick up a long book and read it again.


What did you like best about this story?

The ease of how the characters were brought into the story and when switching between them, not losing track of the ones just listened to. Very well woven together for me to understand. For something that is just a book of fiction, it felt very close to the real world it made me feel uncomfortable, curious and enthralled throughout the whole story. I tried to guess who it might be but the clever twists and possibilities kept me wondering till close to the end.


What about Matthew Lloyd Davies’s performance did you like?

Loved it. Clear, great voice and able to help me identify who the characters were, even when I'd stopped listening and picked up the audio again.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Do you really need that CCTV?


Any additional comments?

I'm a technical person, and I understood the elements of the story, and was quite impressed with the fact that I'm actually listening to something that is a thriller using today's language for the technical person and the detail in which things were done were so close to the truth which is what made it even more enjoyable. It was surreal, and perhaps that influenced my impressions, but it was simply a great story line, possible, probable and frightening.

I'm amazed that in real life, people are so causal about their privacy and security. They need to read this book to get an idea that it's not that far off the truth in what can be done.
