Books From A to Z – Quite Honestly

Quite Honestly – John Mortimer

Life couldn’t be better for Lucinda Purefoy. She’s got a steady boyfriend, a degree in social sciences from Manchester University, and the offer of a high-powered job in advertising. With all this good fortune, isn’t it appropriate for her to give something back to society?

With her newly minted membership in Social Carers, Reformers, and Praeceptors (SCRAP for short), an organization that recruits women to become the guides, philosophers, and friends to ex-convicts coming out of prison, Lucy finds herself standing outside the gates of Wormwood Scrubs waiting to greet a career burglar called Terry Keegan. What happens next- after a short and hostile trip to Burger King-confounds expectations and produces a signature Mortimer tale full of wit and surprise.

My views:  Quite Honestly, this was a predictable story – but makes a good light-hearted read. I would certainly like to read more from John Mortimer.
