From the Inside Flap:

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.

Buchbeschreibung ARROW BOOKS LTD, 2005. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Gebraucht. Gebraucht - Gut Ecken angestoßen - Lewis und Lindsay Thorpe verkörpern das perfekte Paar: jung, gut aussehend und stolze Eltern einer kleinen Tochter. Die beiden sind neben fünf weiteren Traumpaaren das Aushängeschild der exklusiven und ungeheuer erfolgreichen Partnervermittlungsagentur Eden Inc. Als Lewis und Lindsay gemeinsam Selbstmord begehen, schrillen im Eden-Tower Manhattans die Alarmglocken . Die Agentur Eden ist nicht nur für ihre Erfolge bekannt, sondern auch für ihre Diskretion. Kein Wunder, dass Christopher Lash, Psychologe mit FBI-Vergangenheit, bei seinen Ermittlungen auf eine Mauer des Schweigens stößt. Erst als ein zweites Traumpaar tot aufgefunden wird, erhält Lash Zugang zu Edens bestgehütetem Geheimnis: dem Computer Liza, den der brillante Gründer der Agentur entwickelt hat. Doch Lash verirrt sich sehr schnell in einem Labyrinth aus künstlicher Intelligenz, genialer Kreativität und technologischem Raffinement, einem System, das nicht nur die perfekte Übereinstimmung der vermittelten Paare garantiert, sondern auch ein teuflisches Eigenleben entwickelt.
