The missing text story has been added from FAC #20 and part of page one from story three are added from an eBay ad as found by tralfaz

If anyone owns this book Please consider scanning the missing pages so we can complete the scan.

Comment: This title sometimes featured horror tales, this issue, however, contains only crime stories.

Comment: From the look of the original scan, the centerfold (pp 17-20) was missing. The text story is pages 18 and 19, and the incomplete splash is page 20. So only page 17 is unaccounted for (possibly an ad) -- although obviously we want the entire centerfold should it become available.

Also, we now know the title of the story -- Fires of Death.

Comment: Using GCD I now see that the text story "Smart Cons Don't Lie" was later reprinted in FIGHT AGAINST CRIME #20. So those 2 text pages from that issue could be used to reconstruct that part of this issue #12 in a more readable way. Unfortunately I couldn't find any record on GCD of the story "Fires of Death" being reprinted anywhere, so that we could reconstruct that missing first page.
