Overview

If you're the person who murdered my wife and think you've gotten away with it, think again. I'm looking for you, and I'll eventually find you.

They know they're invading your privacy and it's illegal, but they don't care. If you've got nothing to hide don't worry, they'll move on soon enough. Unless you're doing something that interests them. Then they might come to your house to have a talk with you.

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 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.

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite Invasion of Privacy and Other Short Stories is a collection of Jim Liston's tales and vignettes. The title story, Invasion of Privacy, is about Jim Gotweb, a computer geek who has a little computer store which he runs with his wife until she's stabbed and left for dead by a robber. Jim got a look at the robber as he was leaving the store; a man with a spider tattoo on his face. Devastated and bereft, Jim decides that he's going to find the man even if the police can't, or won't.  He refreshes his rusty programming skills and sets up a program that allows him to spy on people via their webcams. His program soon has him quite busy with an amazing number of homes to watch, and he's even helped out some victims of abuse and other crimes as a result of his surveillance. He's getting pretty stretched for time, however, and decides to look for an employee to handle the counter trade. Roger, a young geek, is soon working the counter and helping him with his program. Just as Jim despairs of ever finding his wife's murderer, things start to happen. Invasion of Privacy and Other Short Stories is a remarkable collection of short stories that 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 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.

GOOD. This is a enjoyable collection of short stories with some good story plots. I liked Invasion. Many of the stories have unique and interesting twists and turns.

Invasion of Privacy was a very good short story although it ended abruptly. The other stories, however, were very predictable.
