Pirates of the Gorm by Nat Schachner:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

No one knew Grant Pemberton's mission - or did they?

"Why had this Ganymedan tried to whiff him out of existence? Grant frowned. No one on board knew of his mission, not even the captain. On the passenger list he was merely Dirk Halliday, an inconspicuous commercial traveler for Interspace Products. Yet someone had manifestly penetrated his disguise and was eager to remove him from the path of whatever deviltry was up. Who?"
