Read an Excerpt

This can't be happening, Karen thought incredulously.  This is impossible!

Though her head still throbbed from its violent encounter with the stove corner, the intensity of the pain seemed to be lessening.  As this occurred, Karen found herself becoming aware of other areas of discomfort.  The twine with which Betty's companion had tied her wrists and ankles was cutting into her badly, and her hands, which had been secured behind her back, were numb from the weight of her body.  The dish towel pressed cruelly against her injured mouth, and her bones ached from her fall to the kitchen floor.

How long were they planning to leave her here?  Karen wondered.  What could the purpose behind all this be?  If it was to rob the Center, it was unlikely that Betty and her friend would be returning before evening.  The parents paid when they picked their children up at night, not when they brought them in, and there was never much money in the cash drawer in the mornings.  When it came to that, there was little money there at any time; most of the Center's clients were regulars who paid monthly by check.

It simply didn't make sense.  If this couple had decided to rob a business establishment, there were any number of more promising prospects.  A bank or a store or even a video game hall would have more cash on hand.  They had managed to learn everything else about the Center--who was employed there, who the director was--even the schedule of the bus that Karen rode to work in the mornings.  It was inconceivable that they could be stupid enough to believe that there would be enough money at a day care center to be worth the risk involved in robbing it.  

Again, Karen found herself experiencing the feeling that she had missed something.  Carefully, she reviewed every word she could remember.  First, she and Betty had talked in the car.  Then, the man, Jed, had entered the picture.  He had dragged Karen into the apartment and called her a "wildcat."  "Surprise, surprise!" Betty had said.  "She doesn't look much like one, does she?"  What else had she told him?  "Tie our little friend up, and let's get going.  You did get gas, didn't you?"

Hold it a minute!  What was that about the gas?

Karen slowed the pace of her mind and centered it upon that item.

"You did get gas?" Betty had asked--yet she had been the one who had been out that morning.  If gas for the car had been needed, she would have bought it.  The gas she was referring to must have been for the van.  Did that mean that she had expected to drive the van to the Center?  That didn't seem reasonable.  It would have looked strange for Karen's "Aunt Nancy" to have arrived in a laundry truck.  What was it, then, that the van was to be used for?

As she reviewed the conversation, Karen remembered that there had been a second part of it.  After asking about gas, Betty had mentioned needing a road map.  That had to mean that after the robbery, the pair was planning to head immediately for some place far enough away so that they needed a map in order to plan their route.

And, that must mean--

Dear God,  Karen realized with sudden horror, they're not coming back here!

They were not going to release her--and why on earth should they?  A return trip to the apartment would gain them nothing.

I'm going to be left here!  I won't be discovered until next month's rent is due!  Karen shuddered convulsively.  How long can I stay alive?

She had read articles about people who had been marooned in wilderness areas, set adrift in lifeboats, or stranded in the desert.  Some of them had survived for weeks without food, but in all cases such as those, there had at least been water.  Food was important, but water was more so.  No one could live very long without liquid intake.

I've got to get out of here--but how?

    Edge of your seat thriller

    I have read many of Lois Duncan's books, this is the best one thus far. The suspense is enticing from beginning to end. I liked the subject of ESP and how Duncan related this for the reader through a normal girl such as myself her ability to go beyond and accept her gift. I would suggest this book to readers looking for a suspense filled adventure.

    Third Eye

    This book was awesome. I read it for my honors literature class in seventh grade and I loved it. The book is about Karen Conners, a girl who finds out that she can see missing children. It's a really cool book that kept me guessing until the very end. I even loved the ending. I won't tell you. You'll have to read the book for yourself and trust me. You won't be disappointed. Also, read the other Lois Duncan books. They're awesome too.

    Dude, the Third Eye was a fictional book written by one of my favorite authors, Lois Duncan. The Third Eye was defiantly an amazing book! I loved it its one of those books when you want to read it all over again. The Third Eye, kept me on suspense throughout the whole book. This book was also very creepy, especially when Karen Conners can see where the stolen children sleep. In the present time of Mexico is where most of the chaos took place. Not only did it take place in Mexico but also in Karen's head or visions. Karen had to face many problems with this ¿third eye,¿ which had a big impact on her. The major conflict was helping families find their stolen children without being labeled as a ¿freak¿. I loved the writing style that Lois Duncan used. I¿m defiantly going to read more books by her. The only thing that I did not like about the writing style was how she used big vocabulary. Lois Duncan used very big words but the book was detailed enough so that you could use context clues to figure out what the word meant. Lois Duncan used first person point of view which was spoken by Karen 'the main character'. The tone of the Third Eye was dramatic and serious. This book was defiantly an amazing book I loved it. The Third Eye should be read be read by people who lik

    a lois duncan fan and a book worm

    This book will keep you reading the whole way. It's about where a high school senior named Karen can see where stolen children are. She finds a boy that she babysitted in a trunk of a car, then she helps a police officer Ron Wilson help find children that were stolen from a children's care place. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery, thriller, or suspense.

    The Third Eye

    Third eye is an awesome book, full of suspense and excitement. From the first chapter to the last, this book really holds your attention. Karen Conners is a average high school senior, except that she isn't. No one knows how to explain it, but Karen isn't normal. While babysitting, one of the children goes missing. He was playing outside with his friends, he vanished. while the police are investigating, Karen has a 'feeling' that Bobby wants to come home, but he can't. She tells the young police officer, and he said that Bobby will probably show up. Then, Karen has a vision of Bobby. 'He's trapped in a car, and it's coming this way.' she told everyone. They found him in the back of Karen's friend's car as he came to pick her up. Everyone was thankful, at first. They soon began to wonder how she knew that. Later, the young police officer named Ron Wilson comes by and asks her to help him on a missing child case and after some investigation, she found out where the girl's body was. Karen was horrified at this, and vowed to put this ability behind her and nevern use it again. However, after a multi-kidnaping occurs at the day-care center where she works, she is pulled into a rescue mission. Her job? to find out the location of the missing children. will they be able to find them before it's too late? Find out in The Third Eye. I loved this book and have read it over and over again. I reccomend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery.
