His parallel travel writing career started with a visit to Prague during the 1989 Velvet Revolution as one of only a handful of 'non-journalists' to actually observe the reality of the changes without being hamstrung by press conferences and filing deadlines. He stayed on in Prague for two years to pen the groundbreaking Cadogan Guide to that city. His 2005 book, The Trial: A History, from Socrates to O. J. Simpson was written after two and a half years spent in Manhattan having arrived shortly before September 11, 2001. He currently lives in London and writes law-based articles for the British current affairs magazine New Statesman.
