Meet Victor Hasselborg, easily the most miserable Private Investigator in the entire galaxy. More comfortable with the dull routine of investigating insurance frauds than interstellar adventure, Hasselborg is bound by duty to chase a runaway heiress across known space to the primitive world called Krishna.

Clad in kilt and sword, his hair dyed green, riding a buggy driven by a six legged monster of a beast, Hasselborg's quest takes him through the volatile world of feudal Krishna politics and into the presence of... the Queen of Zamba.

This novel is also known as The Queen of Zamba and Cosmic Manhunt. It originally appeared in serialized form in Astounding Science Fiction in August and September 1949 as The Queen of Zamba.
