Synopsis

Death Match by Lincoln Child

One of today's most inventive and acclaimed suspense writers, the bestselling author of Utopia now turns his eye to the extraordinary possibility - and dark potential - of high-tech matchmaking. A young couple are found dead in their apartment, and double suicide seems to be the only interpretation...Alarm bells ring in the towering Manhattan offices of Eden Incorporated, the high-tech matchmaking company whose spectacular success and legendary secrecy have inspired awe around the world. The Thorpes, few people knew, were more than the quintessential happy couple - they were Eden's first perfect match. Christopher Lash, a gifted former FBI forensic psychologist, receives an urgent plea from Eden to perform a quick - and quiet - investigation into the deaths. Lash's investigation inadvertently dredges up the memories of a searing personal tragedy he has kept at bay for years, and his involvement becomes more personal and dangerous than he could have imagined. When a second Eden couple is found dead, Richard Silver, the company's brilliant and reclusive founder, has no choice but to grant Lash unprecedented access to its most guarded secrets...

Pure entertainment. - The San Jose Mercury News PRAISE FOR LINCOLN CHILD'S PREVIOUS NOVEL, UTOPIA : Ultra-entertaining.... Lincoln Child weaves fascinatingly plausible technologies and a frighteningly believable tale. Dan Brown, author of THE DA VINCI CODE As far as plot, action and suspense are concerned, UTOPIA could hardly be improved upon, but that is only the first of Child's achievements. His characters are first-rate, as is his writing.... UTOPIA is a sensational piece of popular entertainment. If you're looking for intelligent fun, it doesn't get much better than this. Washington Post Book World A beautifully crafted scare-fest.... UTOPIA's gadgetry is heaven for techno-thriller fans, and the threats from the sabotaged attractions are startlingly inventive. Here's hoping for a sequel. People Magazine
