Review by wyvernfriend
This is the story of Eden, a matchmaking service that charges quite a lot for it's services. However it's success rate is quite high as well, many of the people matched by the service are very happy with their mates. So when one of the golden couples, a supercouple or couple who scored 100% in their match commit suicide the company want to know why. Is it a problem with their system? The repercussions could be intense.So they call in Christopher Lash, an ex-FBI forensic psychologist, to look into these murky depths. His questions lead to more questions than answers and as the story continues and a second supercouple are found dead the case starts to get more and more complicated and the stress piles on himIt's an interesting story and I did figure out most of the plot from fairly early on, but it kept me reading and interested throughout. Lightweight but enjoyable.
