From the creator of the Rumpole stories-a novel of middle-class do-gooding gone awry
Fans of John Mortimer and his popular Rumpole mysteries will love Quite Honestly, a comedy filled with a delightful cast of characters and Mortimers unique and entertaining take on a life of crime. Life couldnt be better for Lucinda Purefoy-college educated, with a steady boyfriend and a job offer in advertising. With all this good fortune, isnt it appropriate for her to give something back to society? Armed with only good intentions, she joins Social Carers, Reformers and Praeceptors (SCRAP, for short), a misguided organization that recruits women to becomes guides, philosophers, and friends to ex-convicts coming out of prison. Once she meets her charge, Terry Keegan, the ensuing hilarity and mishaps produce a signature Mortimer tale, full of wit and surprise.
