Publisher's Summary

One woman's quest to discover the truth behind her husband's death will pit her against a new generation of cutting-edge surveillance technology and the most dangerous conspiracy in America - Invasion of Privacy is the riveting, new standalone suspense novel from New York Times best-selling author Christopher Reich.

On a remote, dusty road 40 miles outside of Austin, Texas, FBI agent Joe Grant and a confidential informant are killed in a deadly shootout. Left to pick up the pieces is Mary Grant, Joe's young wife and mother of their two daughters. The official report places blame for the deaths on Joe's shoulders...but the story just doesn't add up and Mary has too many troubling questions that need answers. How did Joe's final voice mail - containing a cryptic warning for Mary, recorded moments before the fatal shooting - disappear without a trace from her phone? Stonewalled by the FBI, Mary will be drawn into a deadly conspiracy that puts her in the crosshairs of the richest and most powerful men in America...and the newest and most terrifying surveillance system known to man.

New York Times best-selling author Christopher Reich is the master of crafting thrillers of the highest caliber, with nonstop action and nail-biting suspense. Invasion of Privacy is his richest, most relevant novel to date and will have listeners hooked from the first minute to the last. Your privacy is for sale.

    "A good thriller"

    "Fabulous 5+"

    One of the best books I've read this year (and I listen to about 5 a week). I loved the characters, the suspense and the thrill of the entire ride. Narration was superb. You won't be disappointed.

    "Hard to stand up with all the eye-rolling"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Maybe John Sandford could rewrite it.


    What could Christopher Reich have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't know. There was just SO much improbable cartooonish plot baloney.


    What didn’t you like about Paul Michael’s performance?

    He wasn't 'bad' but some of the accents were over-played and too heavy.


    What character would you cut from Invasion of Privacy?

    Ian Prince


    Any additional comments?

    I have (I always forget the number) 600 or 700 titles here. Most are this type of book. I am pretty tolerant because there are only so many possible plot lines and formulae but this is just SO improbably and stupid. I walk 5 miles every morning and listen during the walks. I kept almost falling down from all the eye-rolling. I liked a number of this guy's books in the past but he is getting more and more 'out there'.

    Story
    "Online, everyone can hear you scream"

    Christopher Reich's Invasion of Privacy is a digital, online, virtual nightmare. After her FBI husband is killed, Mary Grant must connect the dots after the "official" story doesn't add up. She finds herself over her head in a massive conspiracy that her husband had been investigating. Along with her tech savvy daughter and a washed up old school reporter, she must battle a megalomanical computer wizard who has both the FBI and the NSA in his back pocket.

    Tradecraft, both in terms of gumshoe detective work as well as computer hacking are both rendered in great detail without overshadowing the story. Reich manages to deliver an engaging tale of an overwrought widow fighting back against a rigged system. In terms of realism, there is little that is not already feasible, except perhaps for the specialized supercomputer.

    The narration is quite good with a more than respectable array of voices of both genders.

    "Well-paced, well done!"

    I needed some time to get used to the speaker, but then it felt like he did a fantastic job. The story is fantastic, entertaining. I loved the mixture of real world companies and politics and the author's own inventions. This book was every bit as good as any one of Joseph Finder's.

    Story
    "Fast-Paced Espionage Thriller"

    Mr. Reich has an amazing way of developing strong major characters armed with their own objectives, and in opposition to the other characters in the story.

    The story resonates today to the world of the Internet, cyberwar fare, corruption, and government surveillance issues.

    The pacing, the twists and turns, the plot and the sub-plot make this mystery/suspense,thriller a real worthwhile novel to read.

    Me. Paul Michael did an excellent job of narrating.

    I enjoyed it and recommend readers to check it out.

    "A truly awesome read..."

    This is only the third book out of 50, to which I have given 5 stars.. It actually deserves more!

    Gripping plot; wonderful characters and nail-biting moments aplenty.

    I strongly recommend this book.
