Invasion of Privacy Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Invasion of Privacy

One year after almost being killed while trying a case, Nina Reilly again returns to the courtroom, although she no longer practices criminal law. Instead she's handling a pretty routine invasion of privacy suit in which a filmmaker, Terry London, who made a film about a girl who'd disappeared fifteen years earlier, is being sued by the girl's family. Everything is pretty normal until Terry London is brutally murdered, and Kurt, the father of Nina's son, is charged with the crime.

Nina hasn't seen Kurt since he abandoned her when she was pregnant twelve years earlier. She is shocked to learn that Terry was Kurt's ex-wife, who had been stalking him relentlessly for years. To complicate things further Kurt also once dated the missing girl who was the subject of Terry's film. The evidence against Kurt is strong. Before Terry died she made a video accusing Kurt of being the murderer. Against her better judgement, Nina agrees to represent Kurt. The case forces Nina to face her feelings for Kurt, feelings that she thought she'd buried twelve years earlier. As she investigates, Nina discovers that Kurt's claims to innocence may be true. Terry's killer is still on the loose, and Nina becomes his next target.
