    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    "Mind bending in the scope of invasion"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Invasion of Privacy to be better than the print version?

    Did not read print version


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ian Sutherland? Why or why not?

    Yes


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Matthew Lloyd Davies?

    Yes


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The book took some getting used to as it jumped from one story line to another. But once I got used to that the story came together. It presented a disturbing possibility as to how much privacy we have lost with technology and the things that could happen because of it.

    "Too techie for me"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Nothing really. The book is great for those people who have a deeper knowledge and interest in computer speak than I. I read the reviews before I purchased it but , I guess it wasn't something for me.


    What three words best describe Matthew Lloyd Davies’s performance?

    OK for some....
    , nothing against the narrator , but just to confusing for me. By the time I figured out what he was talking about the story had progressed

    I didn't want this book to end!Narrated brilliantly by Matthew Lloyd Davis,it takes us through the world of cyber hacking for good or bad.There are cameras everywhere these days,some are known while others are hidden in the most private of places.Two womens bodies are found and traced back to meeting rooms where a cyber attacker has altered things to make it look like actual meetings for promotions,gigs,whatever was needed to lure them there.DI Jenny Price investigates and brings on a 'tech consultant' not knowing his full range of hacking ,to help figure out these murders.How things are traced to whom,the tech ability,it is all just fascinating!Give it a go!

    Story
    "Techno Crime Thriller which for the present day"
    Would you listen to Invasion of Privacy again? Why?

    I would listen twice if/when there are several more books in the Deep-Web series; I would go back over it again to refresh the plot in my memory. The book was certaintly good enough to merit that. Very well researched and believable. The situations didn't see 'too' far fetched and things made sense.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Invasion of Privacy?

    I think the killers' twisted imagined monologues were a little unsettling, but added to understanding of just how warped some people are.


    Have you listened to any of Matthew Lloyd Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No this is the first time for a Matthew Lloyd Davies narration for me. I enjoyed his reading, smooth didn't feel forced. He 'fit' the book.


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

    Jack the Ripper is now Online.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book. I don't typically gravitate towards this kind of techno thriller becasue it is so easy to find holes in the plots or authors just throw techno jargon at you and expect the reader to swallow it. However it is clear that the author Ian Sutherland researched everything very well which added teriffically to the enjoyment of the book. I would read more of this series if and when they are written.

    "Well written and exciting technothriller"

    Really enjoyed this title. Well researched (for the most part) and technically accurate, which is pretty rare when it comes to the depiction of hackers in entertainment. Never gets too bogged down in the minutiae but very enjoyable for techies. Characters are well drawn too, Brody is an interesting protagonist, not an anti-hero but morally shaded enough to not be true hero either. Only reason it's not 5 stars across the board was the unnecessarily creepy inner monologues from the viewpoint of the killer, and the glaring inaccuracies about the fire system that plays such a large role in the climax of the book (the only drawback of really doing your homework as an author is it highlights when you don't)

    I've been writing software for over twenty years. Most of the books in my collection are science fiction or computer related materials.

    "Scary potential! A great read."
    Would you listen to Invasion of Privacy again? Why?

    I enjoyed the cat and mouse game throughout the book.. I was a good read.


    Have you listened to any of Matthew Lloyd Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first time listening to Matthew Lloyd Davies. He did an excellent job & I love his accent. His voice lulls you along & holds your attention.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    How vulnerable we are when evil people prey on us as we our trying to fulfill our dreams.


    Any additional comments?

    I got this book for free if I did a review.

    "Worth a listen"

    Story well written and tech stuff well explained. Not sure about the narrator though. Not bad,but I found the accents and different voices a bit distracting. Perhaps it would have been helped by being done as a multi performer narration.
