Teaser Tuesday (March 3)



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser this week is from The Shut Eye by Belinda Bauer

The Shut Eye


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? Amazon

My Teaser

The man who’d been seen on TV was a big disappointment. Richard Latham was stocky and middle-aged, wearing thick glasses and beige slacks, and when he walked on to the small raised plinth that was supposed to be a stage, he bounced along on his tiptoes with the exaggerated gait of a puppet on strings. Anna thought there must be something wrong with his feet or legs.
It was comical, but it was also a little bit disturbing.

What do you think? Would you like to know more?

  1. I do like Bauer’s work, Cleo. I’m not usually one to go for the ‘psychic’ theme in novels, but there are a few where it works. I’ll be keen to know what you think of this one when you’ve finished.

  2. Sounds interesting to me and I don’t mind the psychic angle. The whole mincing along like a puppet certainly paints a vivid picture. Yep, this draws me in. Plus I want to read this author.

  3. Ooh, that description really tells us quite a bit about this character….I can see him clearly! Thanks for sharing…and now I want to know more about this book. Here’s mine:

  4. I like the narrative voice the author uses. I like it! I would keep reading. I’ve never heard of this book before.
