Her name is Bond. Jamie Bond. And danger follows her everywhere.... As a private investigator, Jamie Bond thought she had seen every sort of cheating-spouse case imaginable. That is until she´s hired by a wife who´s afraid her husband is cheating...on his diet. Rodger Claremont lost megapounds eating sandwiches from the Hoagies chain and subsequently became their celebrity spokesman - a position his wife fears he´ll quickly lose if the pounds come back on. But what starts as a simple case of following a potentially unfaithful (to his diet) husband turns deadly when Jamie finds Rodger murdered in his own home. Was the wife afraid of losing her sandwich fortune? Was it a competing fast-food chain out for revenge? Or did Rodger´s friendship with a shady rapper named Heavy Cash have anything to do with it? Jamie vows to get to the bottom of it, even if it means stepping on the toes of the investigating assistant district attorney, Aiden Prince - a man Jamie could easily find herself falling for despite her budding attraction to her best friend, photographer Danny Flynn. Caught between two men, Jamie finds herself road-tripping to Vegas, babysitting a pair of senior sleuths, searching for a missing ex-boyfriend, and tracking down a cold-blooded killer...who threatens to strike again! ungekürzt.

When art conservator Alix London spots a forgery, she knows trouble will follow. So she’s understandably apprehensive when her connoisseur’s eye spots something off about a multimillion-dollar Jackson Pollock painting at Palm Springs’s Brethwaite Museum - her current employer. Alix is already under fire, the object of a vicious online smear campaign. Now the Brethwaite’s despicable senior curator, obsessed with the ´´maximization of monetized eyeballs,´´ angrily refuses to decommission the celebrated Pollock piece. But it’s only when a hooded intruder attacks Alix in her hotel room that the real trouble begins. And when FBI Special Agent Ted Ellesworth - with whom Alix had inadvertently, but thoroughly, botched a budding relationship just a year prior - turns up to investigate the Pollock, Alix knows she’s about to have her hands full. In her third mystery, Alix London must see through mirages in the desert to uncover the knotted history of the painting - and save herself in the process. ungekürzt. Language: English.

Jamie Winter loathes her job as a secretary in the sleaziest law firm in New Jersey. Trouble is, someone else loathes the whole firm - enough to kill one of the partners, the two-timing, 11-fingered king of lowbrow television commercial spots, Dougie Digits. Now, Jamie is being strong-armed into investigating by Dougie´s frosty widow, Hilary. The suspect list is long, including the firm´s bookish paralegal, embezzling bookkeeper, ambitious associate, and resentful senior partners. Add to that list a mélange of oddball clients with grudges of their own, and Jamie has her work cut out for her. With assists from her studly landlord and husband-hungry sister, Jamie uncovers enough dirt on her coworkers to launch a tabloid in her hunt to find the killer before he or she strikes again! ungekürzt.

Essay from the year 2007 in the subject Law - European and International Law, Intellectual Properties, grade: 1,0, University of Bremen (Fachbereich Rechtswissenschaft), course: International Public Law, language: English, abstract: Following from the general principle of international law imposing respect for the sovereignty of foreign states, senior state officials, as state organs, traditionally are subject to the jurisdiction of their home state only. It became customary law that state officials enjoy immunity of the jurisdiction of foreign states for acts performed in their official capacity, irrespective of the place where the action took place or the persons who were affected by it. In correspondence to the privileges of diplomatic agents, as declared in the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 1961, these immunities apply even to private acts. When it comes to criminal proceedings, traditionally the territoriality principle has to be respected. Especially in cases of international crimes, which in many cases are performed by high ranking state officials, it is often not possible, though, that the trial takes place in either the home state of the accused or the country where the crime took place. The reason may be a lack of political will to prosecute, a national legal system not capable of carrying out an investigation and prosecution, amnesties granted to the accused for their crimes, or the chance that the accused may not receive a fair trial in the country in question. Prosecution of the committers of the most severe crimes such as genocide, war crimes or crimes against humanity consequently proves difficult. Modern international law tries to provide for less strict rules in respect to the jurisdiction. Next to jurisdiction of international courts the principle of universal jurisdiction hereby plays an important role. To prosecute state officials responsible for international crimes before a court of a foreign state however seems to contradict the immunities that are granted to the officials by international law. This paper examines the scope and the practical relevance of the concept of universal jurisdiction and analyses its compatibility with senior state officials immunities, thereby taking reference to national and international jurisprudence.
