From hit podcaster and New York Times bestselling novelist Joseph Fink ‒ co-author of It Devours! and Welcome to Night Vale – comes ALICE ISN’T DEAD, a fast-paced, addictive thriller about a truck driver searching across America for the wife she had long assumed to be dead.

The novel expands the story told in the hit podcast of the same name which has had over 6 million downloads in its first 10-episode season, making it one of the most downloaded fiction podcasts of all time.  Season 3 of the podcast launched this April.  And it’s also being made into a TV series! 


  ALICE ISN’T DEAD is a creepy, clever horror thriller, that centers around a truck driver who searches across America for her missing wife.  During her journey, she encounters not-quite-human serial murderers,    oracles living at gas stations and rest stops, a strange nameless adversary, and a terrible secret hidden in American history. 

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. In her search for her missing wife, she will stumble on a forgotten American history of secret deals and buried crimes, an inhuman serial killer who has picked her as his next target, and 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.

On October 30th, Joseph Fink will kick off a major 17-City US book tour.  He will appear at Book Expo America & BookCon, (May 31 -June 3) and Thrillerfest 2018 in New York (July 11-14).  He is the co-author of the New York Times bestselling novels It Devours! and Welcome to Night Vale.  He created the Welcome to Night Vale and Alice Isn’t Dead podcasts.  In 2016, Fink and Cranor launched the podcast network “Night Vale Presents” which features fiction and non-fiction podcasts.  He lives with his wife in New York.  For more on “Welcome to Night Vale,” visit:
