Sure, he occasionally ponders whether a personal greatness might exist somewhere inside of him — as anyone, he presumes, might naturally wonder. But his life seldom offers occasion to descend to such introspective depths.Until an innocent oversight brings Charleston face to face with an unexpected bit of information about a man known simply as Mr. Twytharp — the revered and reclusive founder of Thundercom Corporation, a company known as the universes single largest manufacturer of all things material. Housed in a towering 86-floor building, Thundercom has revolutionized business. But as Charleston unwittingly discovers, the lauded humanitarian at the center of the companys success barely resembles — in appearance, at least — the human beings whose culture he has so advanced.Rather than proving his undoing, this discovery brings about Charlestons inexplicable rise to the top of Thundercoms bizarre ranks. His success requires that he keep from asking one simple question. A question he has heretofore seldom asked. A question that is now proving irrepressible. A question that is deeply threatening to the most powerful man-like thing in the global economy.
