    The Thorpes were the perfect couple: young, attractive, and ideally matched. But the veil of perfection can mask many secrets. When the Thorpes are found dead in their tasteful Flagstaff living room, having committed double-suicide, alarms go off in the executive offices of Eden, Incorporated, the worldwide matchmaking phenomenon that uses its astonishing artificial intelligence to create supercouples and guarantee its customers just one thing: lifelong happiness.

    Overall

    Leaving aside the awful (and completely irrelevant) title, I guess this book does what it sets out to do but not much more. It starts off well with a good mystery and ticks along fairly well too but once you get to the final third it all gets a little weak and silly. Kudos for not falling into the easy trap of having the main female and male characters hooking up but the rest of it is fairly standard and uninteresting. There is also the very annoying factor of the narrator reading out huge lists of numbers and codes at various points wich can go on for several minutes - I'm all for unabridged books but there are sometimes when you have to realise that there's little point in reading every last digit.

    All in all, fairly mediocre. I won't be rushing out to get any more Lincoln Child books but its far from irredeemably awful.
