E. M. Davey is a 32-year-old journalist at the BBC specialising in undercover investigative journalism. When not working he enjoys travel to far-flung and occasionally dangerous spots to research his fiction, and just for the heck of it. He has backpacked 47 countries (and counting), including somewhat hairy environs such as the Congo, Sierra Leone, Ethiopia and Burundi. Earlier this year he drove along the Afghan border with Tajikistan.

He grew up in Bristol and lives in south London. He studied history at the London School of Economics and cut his journalistic teeth at the Islington Gazette. At the BBC he has gone undercover for Panorama, presented on the BBC World Service and contributed to investigations on Newsnight, File on 4, Money Box and the national Six O Clock News. He is currently a reporter/producer at BBC Radio 4.

History – particularly classical history –has been his lifelong passion.
