The year is 1919. The McNaughton Corporation is the pinnacle of American industry. They built Evesden--a shining metropolis. But something is rotten at the heart of the city. Deep underground, a trolley car pulls into a station with 11 dead bodies inside. Now, one man, Cyril Hayes, must fix this.
From the Publisher:
After 11 union men are found dead in a trolley car in 1919, a man named Hayes must discover the truth behind the murders--and behind the McNaughton Corporation and the Evesden, the company town it built--before he meets a grim end. By the acclaimed author of Mr. Shivers.
Annotation:
A fantastic model city meant as an urban utopia for an America scarred by World War I turns into a battleground between its corporate founders and the laborers who build and operate the technological wonderland. When 11 union men turn up dead on a subway car, McNaughton-appointed inspector Cyril Hayes dodges obstructions supplied by his bosses and the Evesden police, as tensions rage in the anti-capitalist fight. Between sci-fi murder mystery and historical class struggle, THE COMPANY MAN wages a tireless search for truth.

Praise

"Bennett weaves mystery into this strange but still recognizable world, and the result is one first-class book. Don't miss it." (starred review) - Elliott Swanson 05/15/2011
