Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

When it comes to merging innovative technology with a bizarre murder mystery, few writers do it better than Child. In Utopia (2002), supercomputers ran roller coasters in a high-tech theme park. Here, a state-of-the-art computer dating system, run by Eden, Incorporated--a Microsoft-size corporation--takes center stage. For a mere $25,000, a single person can find a life partner using Eden's flawless matching system. And it's guaranteed, though not one customer has ever requested a refund. When the match is 100 percent, the lucky pair is dubbed a "supercouple," and the subsequent marriage is the envy of all the world. But when one such supercouple is found dead by double-suicide, Eden quietly hires ex-FBI forensic psychologist Christopher Lash to investigate what led to such a tragic end. Lash can't resist the hefty fee, so he reluctantly puts his own private practice on hold, only to discover that his investigation of the supercouple has awakened ghosts from his own past. A second supercouple double-suicide puts Lash and Eden management in a panic. The unusual subject matter blended within the framework of a typical police procedural results in a fun, twisted psychological ride. Mary Frances Wilkens

Review

''Slick, sophisticated entertainment, as well as a cautionary tale about artificial intelligence.'' --Washington Post

''Pure entertainment.'' --San Jose Mercury News

''Child conquers the complexities of artificial intelligence --fuelling the plot with material usually comprehensible only to techno-geeks.'' --People

''The unusual subject matter blended within the framework of a typical police procedural results in a fun, twisted psychological ride.'' --Booklist

''Child...takes familiar and sometimes clichéd ideas and turns them inside out, creating fresh and exciting concepts.'' --Library Journal (starred review)

''The genius-touched Child writes paragraphs of polymathic detail of the kind seen most often in the novels of Richard Powers. Fabulous . . . Terrific writing.'' --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

''Impeccably in tune with the times.'' --Entertainment Weekly

''As in all Child's work, there is plenty of interesting cutting-edge science and, in this case, psychiatric and computer lore . . . putting it all together makes for an entertaining read.'' --Publishers Weekly

''(Audiobook narrator) Barrett Whitener narrates this exciting, paranoia-inducing story with appropriately cool detachment.'' --AudioFile
