Death Match by Linclon Child

Book overview: Everyone’s looking for the perfect match, a life-long partner, and Lewis and Lindsay Thorpe have found theirs, thanks to hi-tech matchmaker Eden Inc. But when the happy couple’s life together ends in what looks like a double suicide, Eden Inc. has some explaining to do. So they hire forensic psychologist Christopher Lash to figure out what went wrong. And then another perfect match ends in death....

My thoughts: I didn't enjoy this book as much as I did Child's first solo novel, Utopia, but it was still a good suspensful read. The characters seemed real like people, not super heroes. They are written well enough that you care for them. There were a couple of twists. The one at the very end was a little scary and sad at the same time.

I appreciate your review. I, too, liked Utopia, but maybe I will try this one sometime later.
