‘Stars’ Align for McLain at Ballantine

Paula McLain, author of the bestseller The Paris Wife, sold When the Stars Go Dark to Susanna Porter at Ballantine. The North American rights agreement for the novel was brokered by Julie Barer at the Book Group. Ballantine called When the Stars Go Dark, which is slated for spring 2021, a “propulsive” tale about “intertwined destinies” that “weaves together actual cases of missing persons, trauma theory, and a hint of the metaphysical.” Set in Mendocino, Calif., in the 1990s, it follows a female detective who, the publisher said, “hides away from the world until her obsession with saving an abducted teenage girl gives her a reason to live again.”
