"A clear new voice offering a startling, memorable debut. In this psychological thriller, a reclusive artist opens up to her new neighbors with life-changing consequences... In her debut, Strick successfully writes with the confidence of a seasoned author. Her prose is often striking… the narrative’s emotional layers grow increasingly complex;…characters…achieve beautiful realization… it is executed masterfully…"

From Kirkus Reviews

"KINGDOM COME, CA is an astonishingly fine book - and the fact that it is a debut novel makes its appearance all the more important. Judy Strick not only knows how to write a mesmerizing story, but she also knows the climate - physical as well as psychological - of her home, Southern California… Writing of this fascinating quality comes around too rarely. Catch it at it's nascent best… Highly Recommended."

by Grady Harp

"One of the best reads that has come my way in a long time. Kingdom Come, CA will almost blind-side you with a surprise ending. Superbly crafted, hugely enjoyable read!...Two thumbs up!"

by Grandma, Amazon Reviewer

"The characters, the setting, the writing all pulled me towards the end too quickly. The Southern California setting was dead-on and even the incidental details were perfect. But the characters are what really made this story for me. … I couldn't put it down. Hard to believe it was a debut novel. I only hope the author can be as prolific as John Irving."

What wish could have been so important, that the very making of it would wind up destroying my family?

And now I can’t even remember what I had wanted so much on that lovely afternoon by the sea, the last afternoon of my childhood.
