Everything Leads Back to Alice is a tragic psychological horror about loss, memory and the monumental difficulty of letting go. When Mike hits rock bottom he heads back to his hometown, hoping to dig ups some answers about Alice, his girlfriend from highschool who went missing and was never found.
Chris Marrs does an admirable job of showing us the humanity behind Mike’s self destruction, and doesn’t give us any easy or trite answers. The end is harrowing and will stay with you long after you close the book. Make sure to read it in a room with no dolls.
