That's why she joined SCRAP (short for "Social Careers, Reformers and Praeceptors"), an organization that trains girls like Lucy to become the "guide, philosopher and friend" to ex-convicts coming out of prison, to find them a job, a home, and to encourage them to kick the habit of stealing things. And so Lucy finds herself standing outside the gates of Wormwood Scrubs, on a windy March morning, waiting to greet her first SCRAP "client", a career burglar named Terry Keegan.
What happens next confounds expectations and produces a story full of surprises. With a cast of characters that rivals anything in his famous Rumpole stories and a compulsive plot, Quite Honestly is a wonderfully comic novel, packed with John Mortimer's entertaining reflections on crime.
