Book Description

Someone could be watching you right now, as you sit at your computer.


You think you're alone and you expect to have a certain amount of privacy, but there's a good chance your computer isn't safe. It's one of the easiest things for a hacker to do. They can turn your webcam on, without you knowing, and watch everything you do.

Jim and his team of computer hackers are searching for a killer. They know they're invading your privacy and it's illegal, but they don't care. If you have nothing to hide don't worry, they'll move on soon enough.

Invasion of Privacy is a short fiction murder mystery that will have you on the edge of your seat. It's a decent-sized novella and an interesting angle on a modern if questionable method of detection, without delving into forensics nor taking the computereze technobabble to ridiculous lengths. The rest of the stories in the anthology are flash fiction, short enough to read while waiting in line or at the doctor's office, powerful enough to stick with you the next day.They are a combination of true crime, drama, and other flash fiction adventures.

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite
This remarkable collection of tales and vignettes grab you and don't let go until the end. Some are reminiscent of Rod Serling's Twilight Zone; a mix of horror, fantasy and the absurd. Others, like Invasion of Privacy, are engrossing short story adventures spiced with a bit of mystery. They all share a few attributes: amazing characters whom you quickly come to know and care about, and story-lines that catch you up in the action with the first few words. Jim Liston's stories are great reading and highly entertaining.

Amazon Verified Reviews
"Read each story on your cell phone as you commute and you'll emerge from your trip with a smile on your face. I absolutely loved The Doctor's Pet Fly, and the last story, Ronnie and the Smoke Bomb, exposed the writer's sensitivity and ability to capture in few words and with well chosen dialog the essence of the character, something that is so difficult to achieve."

"This short story collection is a heady mix of the macabre, the absurd, the horrific--they somehow remind you of the 1960s-era `The Twilight Zone' or the more bizarre episodes of the 'Ray Bradbury Theater'.

"Each of the short stories had its own fascination and attraction. I have to say, that I enjoyed each of them, even that I have never read stories like them before. Some of them I had to smile. Particular the second story "The Tourist Attraction". Until the end, I didn't know what was coming. Brilliantly written, as all the stories are. A very brilliant and enjoyable collection. The stories are still going round my head."

5.0 out of 5 stars Has earned a place in my "keeper" file! 2 Sept. 2013
By MartyH
Format:Kindle Edition
What a wonderful collection of stories! As a voracious reader, I regularly purge my digital book collection to make room for new works, but this book has captured a place in my "keeper" file because it is clearly worth rereading from time to time. The opening story was fascinating and I agree with other readers who related it to an episode one might see on a TV mystery show. In fact I could easily see this expanded even further into made for TV movie. Two things in particular I want to compliment the author on, and that is how he managed to craft such rich characters with so few words, and on presenting the reader with such an interesting mixture of story lines - nothing predictable here from beginning to end.
