KIRKUS REVIEW

How to divorce your wife: (1) Confiscate all your common assets on the Q.T. (2) Get yourself a lawyer as sharp as Forden Athearn. (3) Drop the bombshell and walk out. ""It might even be better if you have already moved out before you tell her. You don't want to be tempted to hit her."" If chivalry weren't already dead, Athearn's first chapter would do the trick and as it is, he deals a heavy blow to simple courtesy. He is dedicated to getting the husband outest with the mostest: money, peace of mind, good name, even the children if the little buggers won't cramp your style. Whether your problem is adultery, desertion, cruelty or boredom, Atheam knows how to take advantage. Since the knife that severs the knot also cuts two ways, this brutal summation of what will happen on that day in court is likely to be even more useful to the offcast distaff who's getting the royal screw from her husband's cold-blooded lawyer.
