While meeting with a confidential informant, Mary Grant's husband, Joe, an FBI agent, is killed on a remote, dusty road outside of Austin, Texas. The official report places blame on Joe's shoulders, but the story just doesn't add up and Mary prods the FBI to investigate. There are just too many questions. Meanwhile, Ian Prince, founder of ONE technology, the world's largest Internet company, has his own concerns about the FBI looking into Joe Grant's death. Prince's newest invention, the Titan supercomputer, is set to launch, and Mary's quest for the truth could cause him trouble. When Mary is stonewalled by the FBI, she takes matters into her own hands. With the help of her daughter, Jessie, a brilliant hacker, she takes over her husband's investigation, putting herself and her entire family in the crosshairs of one of the most powerful men in America, as well the newest and most terrifying surveillance system ever created.

Entertaining and fast-paced. Not one of Reich's best but still a fun read

We click 'accept to all the terms and conditions everytimne we download an app, sign up with telephone company, do things on the internet or sign up with a cable provider. What kind of information are we offering freely and what could be done with these bits and pieces of electronic detritus we are leaving in the cloud? Once you read Christopher Reich's "Invasion of Privacy" you might think twice about what you really need - even if you aren't in any way associated with the FBI. Those who like strong female protagonists will be particularly pleased to watch as Mary Grant tries to pull together snippets of information in order to gain a better understanding of how and why her husband was murdered. Whether you read this sitting on a stoop, in a hammock, on the beach or if it gives you a reason to get into bed early on a summer night - you won't want to put this book down until you've finished it
