CRATER TAKES A POWDER

JUDGE CRATER TAKES A POWDER by Glenn Lazar Roberts.

In August 1930, Judge Joseph Crater of the New York Supreme Court said goodbye to his friends one late evening and proceeded to walk to the Belasco Theater only a few streets away. He never arrived. The disappearance of Judge Crater became one of the greatest mysteries of Depression-era U.S. In  Roberts’ Judge Crater Takes A Powder we learn what “really” happened to Judge Crater—and to Amelia Earhart—in this hilarious sci-fi novel that involves J. Edgar Hoover, German spies, Japanese submarines, cowardly mafia, tittering nuns, and Orson Welles, as Hoover tries to recruit Joseph Crater and Amelia Earhart to help him uncover a galactic conspiracy of gloriously incompetent aliens who have assumed human form. From 1930’s New York City to alien planets, Judge Crater is a devastating satire of modern political correctness. Warning: no safe spaces inside!

REVIEWS:

“Nuts!” —SiriusReviews.com

“Roberts interweaves historical fact with castles in the air, dubiousness and irony to create a fast paced narrative filled with the almost plausible as well as out-and-out incredible in this sardonic romp. . . For those who like a bit of sarcasm swathed in quirkiness and screwball circumstance; Judge Crater Takes a Powder should prove to be a worthwhile read. Happy to recommend [it] for those not easily dismayed, repulsed or dazed.” —Authorsden.com
