Down with Crime #7 was on my want list for a long while.  A few years ago, this was an inexpensive book (if you could find one).  But I suppose one or two others are out there like me hunting for a copy of this very odd cover.  After all, what’s up with the gas mask?  And how does the perpetrator  just walk straight into a window from the tenth plus floor? Good thing the damsel on Fawcett‘s 7th and last issue of the 1952 – 1953 crime series is packing. 

Cover artist is unknown, but sometimes credited to Bernard Baily

Time will tell if the “Payoff” will be for buyer or seller of this scarce, strange book.
