Publication Date: December 31, 1969



If Stella Crown loves anything as much as her farm, her Harley, and her friends, it's a good dose of rock-and-roll. But when the chance arrives to see a Philadelphia legend in concert, she gets more than she bargained for. A bomb threat empties out the club, and when the panic subsides, a member of the band is missing.

About the Author

Judy Clemens would like to come back again as a rock musician. Until that time she must live out her dream vicariously by telling the story in The Day Will Come, the fourth book in her Anthony and Agatha-nominated Stella Crown Series. Judy lives in Ohio with her family and four cats.

Praise For The Day Will Come: A Stella Crown Mystery


"This is a well-written series, whose characters, while nontraditional, are completely believable. We learn about dairy farming, tattoos, band practice, whatever, all skillfully subservient to the story. You go, Stella."  --Contra Costa Times

Clemens avoids making farm life too bucolic, while Stella, with her Harley, cows and engaging circle of friends, will appeal to cozy and more mainstream mystery fans alike. This is a solid addition to a series that improves book by book.--Publisher's Weekly

"She's smart. She's tough. She's sexy...Alternately a Harley-riding, tough farm girl and a kindhearted, vulnerable woman, Stella makes an endearing heroine in a promising first novel."  --Booklist on Till the Cows Come Home

"Though Stella and her friends often seem an unlikely bunch, Clemens certainly keeps you guessing." --Kirkus Reviews
