Summary
In 1919, the McNaughton Corporation is the pinnacle of American industry, sitting at the center of a shining metropolis full of the best the world has to offer. But something is rotten in the heart of the city: an underground trolley car pulls into a station with eleven dead union members inside, all seen boarding at a different station just four minutes before. Now Cyril Hayes must suss out the dark secret behind the inventions of McNaughton and stop a war brewing between the executives and the workers before the whole city burns. Caught between the union and the company, between the police and the victims, Hayes must uncover the mystery before it kills him.
Summary
After eleven 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
