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.
About the Author
Praise For Death Match…
“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.”
