    • Abstract:
      Summary: 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 with a trucking company, 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.

Booklist Reviews 2018 August #1

Fink (Welcome to Night Vale?, 2015, with Jeffrey Cranor) opens his newest book with a confession: he suffers from anxiety. While his anxiety is often crippling, Fink has channeled that fear into writing some of the most engrossing supernatural stories out there today. Readers who cope with a similar disposition are sure to identify with the book's two main characters, Alice and Keisha, who navigate their own anxieties in an exceptionally terrifying atmosphere. Alice has been missing for so long that her wife, Keisha, is forced to assume she is dead. Keisha tries to move on, until she recognizes Alice in the background of a TV-news segment. Desperate for answers, Keisha becomes a truck driver for the same company Alice was working for when she disappeared and travels across the country in pursuit of her wife. But Keisha soon discovers a dangerous world of roadside bogeymen, leaving her with more questions than answers. The travelers in all of us are sure to enjoy this road trip of a book, even if it means getting lost along the way. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Keisha Lewis keeps seeing her presumably dead wife, Alice, off to the side in news stories and seeks her nationwide by becoming a trucker. Instead, she uncovers an out-of-this-world conspiracy. From the creator of the popular Welcome to Night Vale and Alice Isn't Dead podcasts.

PW Reviews 2018 August #3

Based on the podcast of the same name, Fink's thrilling first solo novel follows a woman thrown into the middle of a secret war that takes place in the vast, empty stretches of America. Keisha Taylor believed her wife, Alice, dead after she disappeared without a trace. Then, six months after the funeral, Keisha sees Alice in the background of a news report. Thus begins her search, crisscrossing America after getting a job as a long-distance trucker, following up leads culled from Alice's notes and papers. Along the way, she's threatened by monsters called Thistle Men and discovers a vast conspiracy that protects them as they prey upon people along the highways. Creator of the popular Welcome to Nightvale podcast, Fink (It Devours! with Jeffrey Cranor) fills his world with fully realized characters, from Keisha, who uses her grief and anxiety to give herself strength, to Sylvia, the runaway teenager who fights against the Thistle Men who killed her mom. Fans of eerie suspense will find much to like. Agent: Jodi Reamer, Writers House. (Oct.)
