Description

Robert Jackson Bennett's debut novel Mr. Shivers was called "compelling and truly horrifying" (Library Journal), winning him favorable comparisons to Stephen King and Cormac McCarthy. The Company Man takes listeners on a wild ride to 1919 Washington state, where a war is brewing between the McNaughton Corporation and its union workers. When the conflict's latest casualty prompts McNaughton security officer Cyril Hayes to investigate, he's soon caught up in worker claims that the corporation's machines have minds of their own.

Professional reviews

"Troubled investigator Cyril Hayes must put his mind to the ultimate test after 11 bodies are discovered on a train. This Depression-era noir piece is a brooding mix of mystery and intrigue. Richard Poe dives headlong into this shadowy story, narrating at a swift pace with the gritty tone of the period steeped in his voice. The characters are well realized, and each has a clear, distinct sound that helps move the story along. While the mystery that unfolds is ultimately not as interesting as it first appears, Poe's inspired reading keeps listeners tuned in for the duration. L.B. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
