In recent years there have been an increasing number of incidents involving diplomats, such as the storming of the US embassy in Tehran and taking of hostages, and the murder of a British policewoman by a member of the Lybian mission in London. Other less serious ones, like the flouting of traffic regulations and the non-prosecution of those stealing, have brought the question of immunity into the public domain. Why, it is asked, should law-abiding citizens put up with lawless behaviour from those who can retreat into the sanctuary of an embassy?

To conduct foreign relations and promote the interest of their nationals located abroad, diplomatic and consular officers must be free to represent their respective states without hindrance by their hosts. Recognising this, states receiving foreign diplomats and consular officers have long accorded such persons with certain privileges and immunities on the basis of comity, reciprocity and international agreement. This book describes the privileges and immunities generally owed by the U.S. to foreign diplomatic, consular and international organisation personnel under treaties and statutes, as well as the corresponding abuses that have been uncovered.

The battered van slowed to a stop behind the Cadillac Seville parked next to the wrought iron cemetery gates with Sewell inscribed on the top arch. Josie Palmer closed the door softly. No point in waking the souls resting nearby. In spite of the woolen trench coat, Fedora hat, and scarf pulled high around her ears, Josie Palmer shivered. She didn’t know if it was the weather or the location that gave her the jitters. A moaning sound caused by the wind whistling through the branches of the massive oaks made more shivers slide up her spine. Walking slowly between the headstones of dearly departed members of the Sewell family, she examined the ground leading up to the freshly turned dirt in the far corner of the cemetery. She didn’t expect to find anything. The two men who arrived before her most likely obliterated any evidence. As she approached them, Josie knew why the men stared transfixed at the ground. Scavenging animals had exposed a human leg still wearing a red stiletto heel. Nodding at the silver-haired politician she knew by sight only, Josie looked from him to the remains. “Congressman, I’m Josie Palmer. I hope you have good reason for getting me out this early on a Sunday morning.” “This unfortunate woman is not a member of my family. As quietly as possible, I need you to find out who she is and why someone buried her here.” “Quiet will be expensive, sir,” Josie replied. “I charge $500.00 a day, with an extra hundred if I have to dodge bullets.” “I think I can afford your fee, Ms. Palmer.” “I’ll get started right away.”

Diplomatic immunity, n: freedom from arrest...and submission to police regulations usually accorded by international law to diplomatic agents.* From the most exciting writer of international thrillers since Robert Ludlum comes a riveting tale of intrigue that propels us into the heart of the United Nations. Here conscience and loyalty will collide in one man’s desperate race against time. Diplomatic Immunity Shock waves ripple through the UN at the stunning news: a special envoy has been murdered in the basement. In the midst of a high-stakes General Assembly vote, the last thing officials want is more controversy. But Sam Windrush, a deputy in Legal Affairs, is determined to pursue his friend’s killer--despite roadblocks created by everyone from his supervisor and foreign ambassadors to his lover. Even worse, each of his suspects is protected by diplomatic immunity. Each can escape justice. In less than a week UN officials will wrest the investigation away from am. In less than a week his fourteen-year career will be on the line. And as time runs out, Sam will face an even greater threat. A new suspect not protected by diplomatic immunity has come to light. The only suspect Sam wants to eliminate...the only one he cannot. *Webster’s Third New International Dictionary of the English Language From the Paperback edition.

The year is set in the mid-'nineties when the American economy is finally on the upswing. Jobs are plentiful and most people are making ends meet without too much trouble. New England is a place where most residents are veterans of one war or another. The wars seem long gone, but are they really over? For the Ash family, the war has just begun. Vanessa Ash and her family are typical residents of this quiet, suburban neighborhood. But their personal nightmare is just beginning. It's a nightmare so intense and diabolical, it will jolt you awake. Joe Ash's six-year-old daughter is abducted and put through a torturous ordeal that could only be described as terrifying. Even more horrifying is the fact that this could actually happen to you and your children. All it takes is a terrorist with a demented mind and a connection to a foreign embassy: What if he came to visit your neighborhood? What if he terrorized your family? What if he kidnapped your daughter or son? Worst of all, what if there was nothing you could do about it -- because he was protected by ... DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY ???
