Vintage Golden Age Mystery

I am going to count this much more recent publication as a Golden Age Mystery, in that all the stories published within from Crime Does Not Pay were originally published from 1942-1948. All are crime and mystery related, though fall much more within the true crime style as they follow the criminal rather than any detectives. Those stories that are more original fare better than those that try to tell the entire career of a criminal within 10 or 12 pages. There is some great George Tuska art here, not a big favorite of mine in the 1970s or 1980s. Dick Briefer, Fred Guardineer, and a number of others are also represented.
