Intercepting File I/O from a Child Process??

I need to monitor the log file activity of a third party application in real time.  However, it has placed a read lock on the file so I cannot access it directly off the disk.

Is it possible to redirect or intercept File I/O if I launch it as a Child Process?  I see lots of examples of reading the Standard I/O but I need to read the file stream.  

If that is not possible or you have another way of reading the file, please let me know.

Check out ("API hooking revealed"). This approach allows you to intercept all file I/O calls in the 3rd party app and thus monitoring the log file activity.
