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.

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 ...

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?
