"Death Match" by Lincoln Child

Was looking for a book to read the other day, and this book called "Death Match" by Lincoln Child got my interest. Apparently, it's about this company in the near future that has the technology to match people psychologically. They said in the book that most average happy couples match only 35%, and that their service matched people in the 90 percents. They even have couples, called supercouples, that are 100% matches for each other.

But there's a problem. Their first ever supercouple commits double suicide for some reason. A thourough "psychological autopsy" shows no indicators at all for suicide. Their life was perfect in every way imaginable.

Then more supercouples start to do the same thing, in a variety of ways.
