When the Stars Go Dark
“All I want to do right now is listen to this! I'm listening in the car, while I exercise, while I cook/clean...and just while sitting on my deck. McClain's multi-part, suspenseful narrative uses both real-life people and fictional characters. Combined with the author's own deeply personal experiences and the latest findings on the long-term effects of childhood trauma, the blurred line between fact and fiction is part of this literary mystery's power. When the Stars Go Dark is a departure from McClain's usual historical fiction genre, and I, for one, am glad she took this detour.”Shirley Wells, Watermark Books
“No matter what the genre, McLain is a masterful storyteller. Her protagonist in this latest novel is one of the most authentic and powerful characters I have ever experienced. Anna Hart, a missing persons detective, shares not only her knowledge as an expert on missing children but she lays bare her own personal demons as she struggles to find a teen who has disappeared. I was captivated from page one and couldn’t stop until I finished this intense and provocative story. Absolutely mesmerizing!”Stephanie Crowe, Page and Palette
