Peter Jukes is a British writer and journalist, nominated for several awards for crowd funding his live Twitter coverage of all 130 days of the phone hacking trial in Britian.
He details his experience and the backstage drama of the most expensive and longest running completed criminal trial in British history, in his book, Beyond Contempt. His previous 2012 book, The Fall of the House of Murdoch, was described by the former Sunday Times editor Sir Harold Evans as "a roaring great read".
He is also a dramatist for radio and television, whose award winning credits include In Deep, Bad Faith, Waking the Dead and Sea of Souls. His account of living in the modern city, A Shout in the Street, was called "a dream of a book" by John Berger.
Peter is currently the crime reporter for Byline.
