As a young medical student in Edinburgh, Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes, studied under the pioneering, forensic scientist Dr. Joseph Bell. Taking this fact as a starting point, David Pirie weaves a compelling thriller which partners Bell and Doyle as they investigate crime in the strange underworld of violence and sexual hypocrisy running beneath the civilized surface of the Victorian era.
The Patient’s Eyes moves from Edinburgh to Southsea where Doyle begins his first medical practice. He’s puzzled by his patient Heather Grace’s strange eye condition. Heather’s parents died tragically several years earlier, and she’s upset by visions of a phantom cyclist who vanishes as soon as he is followed. When Doyle gets embroiled in more dangerous events, he asks for Bell’s intervention. But Bell is more interested in the patient’s eyes, and the solitary cyclist, than the murder of a rich Spanish businessman.
"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)
“Writer David Pirie has crafted a clever blend of historical evidence and fiction in the grand manner of a traditional Holmes mystery.” (Variety)

A unique twist with a familiar flavor
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.

Not crazy about Bell’s voice, to quick and raspy not what I believed he would sound like. I have read all three of Piries books invisioned Bell sounding differently .

This is book 1 of an intriguing series that once you begin you cannot stop listening. There are convoluted story lines, interesting and varied characters which are all brought to life by the excellent narration of Richard Matthews! If you love Sherlock Holmes this series is a must
