The shut eye by Belinda Bauer
The Blurb
Five footprints are the only sign that Daniel Buck was ever here.

And now they are all his mother has left.

Every day, Anna Buck guards the little prints in the cement. Polishing them to a shine. Keeping them safe. Spiralling towards insanity.

When a psychic offers hope, Anna grasps it. Who wouldn’t? Maybe he can tell her what happened to her son…

But is this man what he claims to be? Is he a visionary? A shut eye? Or a cruel fake, preying on the vulnerable?

Or is he something far, far worse?



It just hooked me from the first to the last page it is told by 3 very different points of views

Anna the mum of Daniel the missing 4 year old

Detective chief Marvel he was a very strong character

And then we have Edie she the 12 year old that disappeared a year ago Marvel was on her case

Anna i like her so much but she did not seem to be coping with her life ?

what did you think ?

What with all the water?

You got to read to see what i mean

i just found her so interesting what could she see ? Was she mad ?

Ido not think she was i was just hooked by her i was trying to read her mind she just captured me so much

Marvel what a character he could be very quick with his answers which i liked he made me smile and laugh i love him on the missing dog case it made me smile

The shut eyes links them together but what a shut eye you got to read to see

The way the story of the missing children was put across so well it will just hook you into the story

Richard the medium was he for real ? I liked his character i enjoy the church meeting it just made me smile

Anna asked him for help but now she seems to be getting the visions too it all was told so well i loved the pictures how could she have know some of the thing she told marvel she just pulled me into the plot was she a psychics or was it the supernatural element ? What did think?

I finished this book in a day it was so good it written so well it very clever i liked all the characters the seem so real to me

The storyline will keep you on toes it very fast paced the ending was so clever i did not see that did you ?

It just a real page turner once you start you will not want to stop till you finish it

Just a great book to read a brilliant storyline that will just grip you i recommend it to you
