|Summary, etc.:|| "The Coincidence Makers tells the story of Guy, Emily & Eric, whose job is creating coincidences and initiating various events in other people's lives. The three graduated from a "coincidence creation course" that took place 2 years prior to the events in the book, in which they learned techniques for creating what look like random events which will cause people to change their own lives. Fate is nothing more than a well-executed mission. Coincidence Makers are not regular people. They are responsible for organizing random encounters between lovers-to-be, creating moments of inspiration that help people make life changing decisions or "building" coincidences that cause important scientific discoveries. But when Guy gets a new special mission, that mission, along with a mysterious killer who appears in town and other hidden forces that he is not aware of, are going to change everything for the three coincidence makers and teach them about fate, free will & the true nature of love" -- Provided by publisher.

*Starred Review* A best-selling author in his native Israel, Blum debuts in the U.S. with this novel, a fanciful tale exploring life's deepest questions about chance, fate, and free will. Eric, Emily, and Guy are young "coincidence makers," recently trained specialists in arranging the affairs of strangers, usually in their favor, by studying their biographies and daily routines enough to discreetly prod them towards fortuitously timed accidents or life-changing encounters. One day, Guy, whose recent missions have so far heavily favored elaborate matchmaking schemes, receives an ominous new assignment from a senior "black ops" coincidence maker, Pierre. Pierre needs Guy's help to ensure that a hit-man's designated target dies a little sooner than he's supposed to, putting Guy in a moral quandary about whether to opt out and keep his hands clean or remain in the coincidence game. In the meantime, Emily and Eric are dealing with their own thorny challenges, bringing the threesome's lives precipitously closer together in unanticipated and dangerous ways. Artfully blending elements of thriller, romance, and fantasy in beautiful prose, Blum's novel is a flight of imagination that will echo in readers' minds long after the last pages have been turned.
