In his novel, David Pirie pairs Bell and Doyle as Doyle would later pair Holmes and Watson, as pioneers in criminal investigation, looking into the seamy underside of the proper Victorian world. Doyle is puzzled by the ocular symptoms of a woman in his medical practice. Bell senses that there is something criminal afoot, and...the chase is joined.

"A must-read, especially for historical mystery buffs and Baker Street irregulars." (Booklist)
"Brilliant debut mystery....The author masterfully manufactures suspense, and several passages are truly spine-chilling....An unsettling solution makes a perfectly appropriate ending for this hard-to-put-down and richly atmospheric thriller." (Publishers Weekly)
The Patient's Eyes is a fine work. Good story line,interesting characters and a solid reader. While the description of the scenes might not compare to a P.D. James, the author really ties the reader to the main character, causing the reader to truly feel the character's emotions. A very enjoyable listen.
I found Richard Matthews to be the reader for "The Patient's Eyes", and he does very, very well.
