New York Times bestseller
From the New York Times bestselling co-author of It Devours! and Welcome to Night Vale comes a fast-paced thriller about a truck driver searching across America for the wife she had long assumed to be dead.
“This isn’t a story. It’s a road trip."
Keisha Taylor lived a quiet life with her wife, Alice, until the day that Alice disappeared. After months of searching, presuming she was dead, Keisha held a funeral, mourned, and gradually tried to get on with her life. But that was before Keisha started to see her wife, again and again, in the background of news reports from all over America. Alice isn’t dead, and she is showing up at every major tragedy and accident in the country.
Following a line of clues, Keisha takes a job as a long-haul truck driver and begins searching for Alice. She eventually stumbles on an otherworldly conflict being waged in the quiet corners of our nation’s highway system—uncovering a conspiracy that goes way beyond one missing woman.

Praise For Alice Isn't Dead: A Novel…
— Entertainment Weekly
“Bracingly candid and unabashedly epic, Alice Isn’t Dead is indeed a wild road trip that backs up Keisha’s hard-won philosophy that “the only way out is through.”
“Alice Isn’t Dead is that rare example of supernatural fiction with both bite and heart. “
— San Francisco Chronicle
“Humdrum reality spins along under our wheels: life, love, work—until a kink in the road takes us deep into the land of Joseph Fink, who builds tarmac that isn’t quite of this world.”
— Laurie R. King, New York Times bestselling author of Island of the Mad
“Ultimately an endorsement of everyday heroism and community, Alice Isn’t Dead resonates as a love story, a road trip novel and a campfire tale that taps into our most primal fears.”
