Quite Honestly (Size: 409.05 MB)
Lucinda Purefoy is a do-gooder: a nice, middle-class girl, fresh out of university (and work experience at the Guardian), who wants to repay her 'debt to society'. Crime-fighting organization SCRAP recruit Lucy to volunteer as a 'mentor' for ex-cons. But her first client, career house-burglar Terry Keegan (just out of Wormwood Scrubs) has ideas of his own. And it's not long before Lucy's distracted from duty by his seductive lessons in the criminal life. Quite Honestly is a clever and highly entertaining comic novel, bursting with big ideas and John Mortimer's reflections on crime, rehabilitation and how wrong some people go trying to do right in life.
