L'unico autore al mondo sempre ai primo posti nelle classifiche del New Tork Times Thom e Jennifer Harlow sono la coppia perfetta, con tre figli perfetti. Non soltanto sono due delle più famose stelle del cinema internazionale, ma sono anche dei genitori modello, dei noti filantropi, amati e stimati in tutto il mondo per le loro molteplici attività di volontariato. E ora sono scomparsi dalla loro villa, enorme e supercontrollata da telecamere di sicurezza. Possibile che siano stati rapiti? Da chi, e a quale scopo, visto che non arriva nessuna richiesta di riscatto? Un caso di altissimo profilo per Jack Morgan, ma forse questa volta nemmeno un detective come lui, capo della più famosa agenzia investigativa della città, con sedi in tutto il mondo, può arrivare alla verità. Ogni passo avanti nelle indagini solleva il velo su un mondo di disperazione e di inganni degno del miglior – o peggior – reality show e il rapimento è solo la scena di apertura di un terribile film dal finale inaspettato...

Private goes on the hunt for London's most feared killer since Jack the Ripper. For Hannah Shapiro, a young American student, the nightmare began eight years ago in Los Angeles, when the owner of Private--the world's most exclusive detective agency--saved her from a horrific death. Now, after eight years, the terror follows her to London. The only man who can help is former Royal Military Police Sergeant Dan Carter, head of Private London. In London, young women are being abducted and their bodies found mutilated in a grotesque, mysterious way. Carter's ex-wife, DI Kirsty Webb, leads the investigation into these brutal murders, which may somehow be linked to Hannah Shapiro. Working together, the two investigators are caught in a desperate race against the odds. Private may be the most advanced detection agency in the world...but can they catch a predator who rivals London's most elusive killer ever?

Traditionally,the theory of human rights limited its application to the public domain, namely the relationships between individuals and public authorities. The great expansion of human rights legislation and concepts in modern national and international law has given rise to a major issue relating to their potential impact on private relationships. This book examines this important topic, which may revolutionize private law. It presents new approaches which strive to broaden the application of human rights to the private field on the ground that power can be abused and human rights can be infringed even when all parties are private. The subject is examined from theoretical and comparative perspectives by leading scholars representing a diversity of legal systems - the United States, Canada, England, South Africa, Germany and Israel. Among the contributors are Professor Todd Rakoff (Harvard), Professor Roger Brownsword (Sheffield), Professor Hugh Beale (Warwick) and Professor Ewan McKendrick (Oxford), Professor Ernest Weinrib and Professor Lorraine Weinrib (Toronto), Professor Christian Starck (Gottingen), Professor Andreas Heldrich (Munich) and others.

Londra, luglio 2012. Mancano pochi giorni all'inizio delle Olimpiadi e la città è parata a festa, pronta ad accogliere gli atleti provenienti da ogni parte del mondo per celebrare il grande rito dello sport. Ma c'è qualcuno convinto che l'antico spirito olimpico sia stato tradito dalla moderna corruzione e che questi Giochi non debbano avere luogo. Il primo omicidio è un segnale chiaro: davanti al cadavere di Sir Denton Marshall, uomo chiave del Comitato organizzatore, i cinque cerchi olimpici disegnati con la vernice spray sono coperti da una X. Tracciata con il sangue. Per la filiale londinese della famosa agenzia di investigazione Private International, al comando di Peter Knight, abilissimo detective e uomo tormentato da un passato di dolore, inizia una drammatica corsa contro il tempo e contro un nemico spietato e invisibile, che si firma Crono e che, come l'antica divinità di cui ha preso il nome, intende «divorare» i Giochi e i suoi atleti. E mentre le gare hanno inizio in un clima di angoscia e di massima allerta, Knight indaga e arriva fino a mettere a rischio ciò che ha di più caro perché la fiamma di Olimpia non si trasformi in fuoco di distruzione, ma resti luce di speranza per tutti?

One of Coward's best-loved classics in a single-play edition Coward's wit and precision as a modern dramatist is nowhere better exemplified than in this classic modern plays from 1930.

They are honeymooning with their respective new spouses. Encountering one another by chance, each is at once horrified and fascinated by the other. Together they leave for Paris and begin a roundelay of quarrels and love intrigues that culminate in their getting back together.

The private enforcement of competition law through damages actions and/or injunctions before ordinary courts of justice is currently the preferred system in the United States. It is playing an increasingly important role in Europe by supplementing a still predominantly public system based on disciplinary rules enforced by public authorities that do not entail compensation for victims. Compensation can only be achieved through private enforcement, which is already viewed as an alternative to the public system. This work, whose origins lie in the International Conference on the private enforcement of Competition Law held at the University of Valladolid's School of Law offers a comprehensive, pluralist overview of the subject by providing transversal approaches, joint assessment and information on various national experiences alongside more specific contributions that study specific matters of substantive and procedural law, by covering practically all the relevant issues in this field. The work also addresses the main problems of the system vis-à-vis private international law and its connection and interaction with public enforcement. Also available in Spanish language, with the title: La aplicación privada del Derecho de la competencia.
