Created by Donald Westlake (1933--)
GED STANTON's a soft-spoken roving claims investigator for The Tangier Mutual Insurance Company who doesn't particularly like rockets or space travel, but he'll put up with it, because it's his job, and, damn it, he likes his job. A good early example of the sci-fi/P.I. genre, and still one of the best, by one of crime fiction's masters. A real good feel to this story, which originally appeared in the sci-fi mag Amazing.
The story can also be found in Westlake's recently reprinted Tomorrow's Crimes.
