Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Terror Bay is a work of fiction in the psychological thriller, suspense, and crime subgenres. It is best suited to mature adult readers and contains explicit language throughout. Penned by author Lisa Towles, the story follows Kurt Farin, a San Francisco homicide detective who survives a gunshot wound to the head, only to find himself haunted by vivid visions of a woman named Genevieve Lucas. Driven by an unshakable intuition, he embarks on a quest to find Genevieve and unravel the truth behind their connection. As Kurt delves deeper into the mystery, the lines between reality and illusion blur, creating an atmosphere of suspense and uncertainty.

Author Lisa Towles has crafted a compelling work that really excels in all the areas you need for stirring crime thriller fiction, from its moody, tense atmosphere to its breakneck-twisting plot and the realistic characters who suffer at every sinister twist. For me, the character development is a particularly noteworthy feature as the close narration makes everyone feel so fully realized. Kurt Farin is a flawed yet relatable protagonist, and his journey of self-discovery keeps readers deeply attached to him and hoping for his survival. The supporting characters are equally intriguing, each with their own secrets and motivations, and I enjoyed the distinct dialogue style that gives each person a unique presence on the page. As the plot unfolds, it takes unexpected twists and turns, leading to a shocking climax that left all my questions answered but still managed a great sting in the tail. Overall, I found Terror Bay to be a real rollercoaster ride of suspense, intrigue, and psychological tension that will keep readers hooked from beginning to end. If you enjoy crime fiction with a psychological edge, this book is a highly recommended read.
