'Indeed,' James mutters, the word sardonic and amused. 'You often find your plane incapacitated whilst flying over... Salzburg, was it? I can imagine that would lead to, hmm, experience with such troubles.'
He knows perfectly well what Jack means by 'experience,' of course. You don't run a criminal trial without checking the background of the defendant, after all, and Jack's criminal record was in the system along with everybody else's- some theft, counts of drunk and disorderly conduct, and- rather bizarrely- masquerading as an Anglican priest. Frankly, though, it's not any of James's business to pry outside of the courtroom. And it's not as if he's never broken the law himself.
He takes the cigarette when Jack passes it, lifting it to his lips and tipping his head back to exhale a long stream of smoke. One eyebrow lifts into his fringe at the question, and he takes another quick drag before passing the fag back.
'I rather doubt most arsonists are the victims of spontaneous whim, if that's what you're asking.' He doesn't answer Jack's other question, but instead turns an amused and slightly dubious expression on him. 'Been doing your research, I see.'
