this was my first North Paterson audio book and while I was pulled into the story I felt after it was over that it left a bad taste in my mouth. As another reviewer stated here Chris Paget and his lover/associate Terri are just too smug for my liking. The no can do any wrong couple that supposedly sacrifices much to put things right. I do confess that Terri's ex husband Richie was one of the worst scum to ever grace the pages of fiction literature his opposites however were too self righteous for my taste. In fact the only character which was three dimensional was Elena the little girl and perhaps even Rosa Terri's mother. The story does grip you and you want to finish the book if only to find out what happens at the end but in the end you will not admire the main characters much when you have finished. The sex abuse angle was interesting though I could not believe Terri was so stupid not to notice it from the start. Chris's son Carlos was annoying to no end and the political side plot was a complete yawn. I have one more North Patterson book that I purchased, "No safe Place," I hope that one will be suspenseful without presenting such black and white characters as there were in this one. This book contains three CDs and is narrated by Ken Howard. He does a good job but his female voices could be improved upon.

This is only my second RN Patterson book, but wow, what a find! I can't wait to go back and get them all.
"Eyes of a Child" is one heck of a story, that grips you right from its chilling opening until it's shattering finale.
The characterizations are richly drawn and extremely credible. Patterson's way with setting up compelling dramatic scenes is amazing. There's one long scene in the book where Terri and her mother Rosa finally discuss why Rosa stayed with the abusive husband. It's forthright, somber, believable and sad, as well. Patterson does this kind of great work in other scenes, too, including the one where Terri comes to find out her daughter, Elena's, horrifying "secret."
Christopher Paget is a noble hero, and I didn't realize he has been featured in other novels, so I was beginning to think he was the murderer. His trip to the Goodwill is one factor; the "journal" is another.
All of the characters are brilliantly conceived: the evil and despicable Richie, whose death seems more than justified; Paget's teen-age son, Carlo, trapped in those waning years between adolescence and adulthood; Rosa, the mother, is compelling and one can't help but sympathize with her; Caroline Masters, Paget's defense, who is a brilliant lawyer and seems to be a true friend as well.
There are no easy answers in this well-crafted novel and our heroes do some foolish things, but it chronicles the tragedy of what happens when a child is placed in a "used" position, and how sometimes even love isn't enough.
EXCELLENT!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

If you have any experience at all reading the whodunit type of mystery story, you will know within the first two chapters who the murderer is in this story. If that's all you care about, you'll be tempted to stop. My advice? DON'T !!!
Eyes of a Child is one of the best mystery novels I have ever read, and I picked it up by accident, thinking it was by another author. Lucky accident! The story is told largely through the eyes of Teresa Peralta, a young hispanic legal assistant in San Francisco, whose husband of six years, Richie, is murdered just before she leaves to go to Venice with her boss and lover, Christopher Paget, a major character carried over from a previous Patterson novel. We know Chris can't possibly be the murderer, because he's the good guy in the previous book, so we're left with only one possible suspect-- so there's no mystery at all about 'whodunit.' In spite of that, the book is a terrific mystery-- not about who, but about how and why.
The 'victim' is a slimeball of major proportions. He's killed in the first few pages. Then, through flashbacks, we're taken through the last few months before his demise. By the time he finally gets what's coming to him, we're ready to go to SanFran and kill him ourselves!
The dramatic insensity picks up when Christopher is arrested and tried for the murder. We know he didn't do it, but his efforts to prove his innocence in the face of many facts that make him look guilty provides the terrific suspense. The outcome is unexpected and exciting.
But I'm missing the main point here: This is no ordinary mystery story, and the plot pales in comparison to some other issues. These are 'real' people. We care about them. We care what happens to them.

This is a very good, interesting and smart legal thriller. He has also got a very good mystery built in. The story line is very good with enough sub plots and interesting characters to keep it interesting through out the book. You keep asking yourself, who did it? The inter character dialogue is also a part of the book that keeps your interest. He writes a deeper book then many of the others out there in this filed so it is a book you need to pay attention too.
