Milo March is an Insurance Investigator.
Making his home in Denver, Colorado, March is a freelance investigator though the majority of his business comes from the powerful Intercontinental Insurance corporation. He is extremely good at his job, making him the person to call when the big trouble happens but he is also not cheap, a factor that plagues the head of the investigating unit of Intercontinental, but does not worry March any at all because he knows just how good he is at uncovering the truth in even very confusing cases.
A member of the OSS during WWII and a founding member of the CIA for many years, March's talent made him a well respected agent and his easy-going manner and friendly style kept him from gaining too many enemies, except for those on the other side. Eventually, however, he decided settling down was called for and he left for the private sector. Considering the far-flung areas his various assignments would take him, though, settling down never happened.
March never sees a drink that doesn't need sipping or a lovely lady that doesn't need kissing and he is too gallant to refuse either. He is good with a gun and a knife and not bad with his fists but his biggest weapon is his brain which keeps him from having to use either too much.
Milo March is included in this collection because, as a former member of Military Intelligence, the OSS, and the CIA, he is often hired or pressed into service by one government agency or another for cases that take him overseas a lot. It is a good thing he speaks other languages fluently, especially German which comes in handy when East Germany gets involved.
