Enter Christopher Lash, a gifted former FBI forensic psychologist who is brought in by Eden to perform a quick (and quiet) investigation. As Lash conducts his detailed "psychological autopsy", he delves deep into the seemingly ordinary private lives of the Thorpes, all the while trying to suppress a personal tragedy of his own that has been kept buried in the past. But when another perfectly matched couple commits double-suicide, Lash finds himself suddenly pulled into the many hidden layers of Eden, Incorporated. It is an astonishing world, one inhabited by Eden's genius, reclusive founder, Richard Silver, a world that inadvertently may bring Lash face-to-face with his own demons.
With tremendous imagination and consummate skill, master thriller-writer Lincoln Child renders a setting too frighteningly believable not to be real. Infused with sharp, cutting-edge technology and a riveting pace, Death Match is Lincoln Child at his best.

"When it comes to merging innovative technology with a bizarre murder mystery, few writers do it better than Child....A fun, twisted psychological ride." (Booklist)
I thought that the concept of the story was really good, but its execution was terrible. I constantly found myself annoyed at the author never choosing the obvious. All the characters were well defined and likable, but stupid. I'm all for stretching reality for a good story, but the main characters just ignore any logical conclusions over and over again. The ending was unbelivable and the epilogue - well, give me a break.
Although the narrator has a smooth voice it seemed to me to be nearly monotone.
This story was predictable and ultimately--boring. The character portrayals were clumsy and shallow and the science behind the story was silly. This was the least interesting mystery I've listened to yet.
I enjoyed listening to this book, but I felt the plot was a little predictable. I guessed "who-dun-it" within the first half of the book and was kind of surprised that I was right, since it seemed pretty easy to pick out.
