WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT INVASION OF PRIVACY:
“I am a little sad it is over but still buzzing from the superb finale. Looking forward to the next adventure.”
"Sutherland deftly weaves dramatic, humanly plausible police procedurals with very high-level hackery to form a novel both intricately plotted and meticulously produced.”

"If the producers of Homeland or 24 are looking for the next, and very relevant, topical and addictive series, look no further.”
Ian Sutherland was brought up in the Outer Hebrides, remote idyllic islands off the west coast of Scotland. In an effort to escape the monotonous miles of heather, bracken and wild sheep, Ian read avidly, dreaming of one day arriving in a big city like London. And then, at the tender age of twelve, he was unexpectedly uprooted to Peckham, inner-city suburb of South-East London. Ian quickly discovered that the real London was a damn sight more gritty and violent than the version he’d read about in books and watched on TV. Undeterred, Ian did what he did best, and buried his head back in his books, dreaming of other places to escape to.
Roll forward some years, and Ian can still be found with his head in a book. Or, given that he enjoyed a successful career in the IT industry, an eBook Reader. And now, having travelled a fair bit of the globe in person and even more of it via the internet, Ian lives with his wife and two daughters in a small idyllic village, surrounded by green fields, copses and the occasional sheep, yet located just outside of the London he finally came to love.
Here, he writes gritty, violent crime thrillers full of well-rounded characters, set in and around London and its suburbs. His stories also feature the online world that most of us jump into blindly each day, but Ian exposes its dark underbelly and dramatically illustrates just how dangerous the internet can be for the unwary.
