Since the beginnings of the oil industry, production activity has been governed by the 'law of capture,' dictating that one owns the oil recovered from one's property even if it has migrated from under neighboring land. This 'finders keepers' principle has been excoriated by foreign critics as a 'law of the jungle' and identified by American commentators as the root cause of the enormous waste of oil and gas resulting from US production methods in the first half of the twentieth century. Yet while in almost every other country the law of capture is today of marginal significance, it continues in full vigour in the United States, with potentially wasteful results. In this richly documented account, Terence Daintith adopts a historical and comparative perspective to show how legal rules, technical knowledge (or the lack of it) and political ideas combined to shape attitudes and behavior in the business of oil production, leading to the original adoption of the law of capture, its consolidation in the United States, and its marginalization elsewhere.

Besessen bis zum Mord John Rothstein hat in den Sechzigern drei berühmte Romane veröffentlicht, seither aber nichts mehr. Morris Bellamy, ein psychopathischer Verehrer, ermordet den Autor aus Wut über dessen »Verrat«. Seine Beute besteht aus einer großen Menge Geld und einer wahren Fundgrube an Notizbüchern, die auch unveröffentlichte Romane enthalten. Bellamy vergräbt vorerst alles – und wandert dummerweise für ein völlig anderes Verbrechen in den Knast. Jahre später stößt der Junge Peter Saubers auf den »Schatz«. Nach seiner Haftentlassung kommt Bellamy dem ahnungslosen Peter auf die Spur und macht Jagd auf ihn. Kann Bill Hodges, den wir als Detective a. D. aus Mr. Mercedes kennen, den Wahnsinnigen stoppen?

Es ist Jagdsaison im englischen Exmoor. Doch die Beute ist nicht das Wild. Es sind die Kinder ... Erst die dreizehnjährige Jesse, dann der neunjährige Pete. Innerhalb kurzer Zeit verschwinden zwei Kinder aus dem Auto ihrer Eltern. Zurück bleibt in beiden Fällen nur eine handgeschriebene Notiz: »Ihr liebt sie nicht.« Mitten im Hochsommer fallen dunkle Schatten über Exmoor. Irgendjemand scheint Kinder zu stehlen – Jesse und Pete waren nur der Anfang. Es gibt keine Spuren, keine Erklärung, keine Lösegeldforderungen und keine Hoffnung. Der Polizist Jonas Holly versucht, sich in den Kopf des Entführers zu versetzen, um ihm auf die Spur zu kommen. Doch zumindest einer in dem kleinen Örtchen Shipcott ist überzeugt, dass der psychisch instabile Holly der Letzte ist, dem man vertrauen sollte ...

The “unexpectedly moving” story of dumb luck and the American Dream in South Philly from the # 1 New York Times–bestselling author (Entertainment Weekly). What would you do if you found a million dollars? When Joey Coyle did, he was a twenty-eight-year-old drug-dependent, unemployed longshoreman living with his ailing mother in a tight-knit neighborhood in Philadelphia. While cruising the streets just blocks from his home, fate took a turn worthy of a Hollywood caper when he found $1.2 million in unmarked bills—casino money that had fallen off an armored truck. It was virtually untraceable. Coyle? Not so much. Over the next seven days, fueled by euphoria, methamphetamine, and paranoia, Coyle shared his windfall with everyone from his eight-year-old niece to total strangers to a local mob boss who offered to “clean” it. Even before news of the missing money made headlines, Det. Pat Laurenzi, with the help of the FBI, was working around the clock to find it. No one was prepared for how Coyle’s dream-come-true would come tumbling down, or what would happen when it did. From “a master of narrative journalism” comes the incredible true-life thriller of an ordinary man with an extraordinary dilemma, and the complicity, concern, and betrayal of friends, family, and neighbors that would prove his undoing (The New York Times Book Review). “A miniature serio-comedy about life in the city.” —The Washington Post “Masterfully reported and artfully paced.” —Entertainment Weekly “A taut, fast-paced tale.” —The Baltimore Sun

A masterful, intensely suspenseful novel about a reader whose obsession with a reclusive writer goes much too far—the #1 New York Times bestseller about the power of storytelling, starring the same trio of unlikely and winning heroes Stephen King introduced in Mr. Mercedes. “Wake up, genius.” So begins King’s instantly riveting story about a vengeful reader. The genius is John Rothstein, an iconic author who created a famous character, Jimmy Gold, but who hasn’t published a book for decades. Morris Bellamy is livid, not just because Rothstein has stopped providing books, but because the nonconformist Jimmy Gold has sold out for a career in advertising. Morris kills Rothstein and empties his safe of cash, yes, but the real treasure is a trove of notebooks containing at least one more Gold novel. Morris hides the money and the notebooks, and then he is locked away for another crime. Decades later, a boy named Pete Saubers finds the treasure, and now it is Pete and his family that Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney, and Jerome Robinson must rescue from the ever-more deranged and vengeful Morris when he’s released from prison after thirty-five years. Not since Misery has King played with the notion of a reader whose obsession with a writer gets dangerous. Finders Keepers is spectacular, heart-pounding suspense, but it is also King writing about how literature shapes a life—for good, for bad, forever.
