This thirties crime novel is available on Gutenberg Australia. Caroline, who has been sharing a small flat with her sister and brother-in-law and feels she's in the way, finds a job as a games mistress at a girls' school. Because she is the unacademic one of a clever family, the Beloved Fool, who can't qualify as a teacher because she can't pass exams, she's lucky to find a job at all. When Caroline arrives at the school she finds that the intimidating matron is implicated in the death of the previous games mistress and has too much control over the school principal. By uncovering the matron's incompetence, Carolina puts herself at risk.

I liked The Third Eye for: the eerie atmosphere; the Silverline bus, which dominated the second half of the book; Carolina finding a job instead of moaning about being poor; the fabulous names of two other important characters, Blanche Bat who is Miss Bat of Bat House, and the matron, Miss Yaxley-Moore.
