Lewis and Lindsay Thorpe were the perfect couple: young, attractive, and ideally matched. But the veil of perfection can mask many blemishes. When the Thorpes are found dead in their tasteful Flagstaff living room (having committed double suicide), alarms go off in the towering Manhattan offices of Eden Incorporated, the high-tech matchmaking company whose spectacular success, and legendary secrecy, has inspired awe around the world. The Thorpes, few people knew, were more than the quintessential happy couple—they were Eden’s first perfect match.

A short time later, 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 psychological autopsy reveals nothing suspicious, but inadvertently dredges up the memories of a searing personal tragedy he has kept at bay for years.

The situation changes suddenly when a second Eden couple is found dead—by all appearances, another double suicide. Now Eden—particularly Richard Silver, the company’s brilliant and reclusive founder—has no choice but to grant Lash unprecedented access to its most guarded secrets if he is to have any chance of determining what is going wrong. The hidden world he discovers is a stunning labyrinth of artificial intelligence, creative genius, and a melding of technology that does indeed, to Lash’s surprise, deliver on Eden’s promise to its clients: the guarantee of a perfect, lifelong mate. But Lash’s involvement in the investigation becomes more personal and dangerous than he could have imagined, nearly as soon as it begins.

With tremendous imagination and skill, master thriller-writer Lincoln Child renders a setting too frighteningly believable not to be real. Infused with relentless suspense and a riveting pace, Death Match is Child at his best.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Debby | 2/10/2014

    " For what it is, I suppose this is an okay book. Two couples in different parts of the country appear to have randomly committed suicide. The only link is how they became couples-through a successful, expensive and secretive dating service. A former FBI agent is hired by the dating service to investigate the deaths. Up until the last couple of chapters, I was somewhat entertained. There is nothing taxing about this read. But, I did find myself rolling my eyes at times and I was not at all surprised by the whodunit. Although I enjoy most of this particular author's works, this one didn't live up to my expectations. "

    " Really fast paced, and takes the "techno-thriller" to a new level. "

    " I had a few problems with this book. First I knew the ending half way through. I kept hoping that there would be a twist at the end and I would be surprised. I wasn't. The second problem was there were too many details. The book just kept going on and on. My final problem was the language. It was a clean book except there was too much swearing. It was too bad because I liked the concept. Eden a couple matching company has two of their "perfect couples" commit suicide. Dr Nash comes in to find out what happened. "
