1984 was not supposed to be an instruction manual....
The residents of households across the country carry on their day-to-day lives oblivious to thousands of internet voyeurs constantly watching them within the privacy of their own homes.
Talented Met Police detective, Jenny Price, frustrated by her over-promoted boss's inexperience, takes charge of a murder investigation following the brutal killing of a beautiful young cellist, lured to a bogus audition. Baffled by how the killer knew his victim's innermost desires, Jenny is contacted by expert security consultant Brody Taylor, who suspects the answer lies in a highly secure website that broadcasts live feeds from hacked webcams.
Working together, can Brody and Jenny find a way to bring down the site and track down the killer before he strikes again? As they begin to make progress, Jenny senses there is much more to Brody than meets the eye. With her boss on the lookout for any misstep, should Jenny continue to rely on the charming but mysterious security consultant?
While dramatically illustrating the dangers of our current reliance on surveillance technology, Invasion of Privacy is first and foremost a cleverly plotted, fast-paced thriller with great characters, suspense and twists galore.
