I picked up several coverless comics and some low grade pre-code comics recently.  I can identify most of the comics but failed on one in the picture.  I looked for a story titled "Murder" in the GCD but didn't find one that matched.  I think the book was produced by Story Publishing which released "Fight Against Crime" and other horror/crime comics but still don't know.  Does anyone recognize this comic?

How about other stories in the book or art credits for a story?

Other stories are The Mistake, Lady Killer and Tricked.

The titles are short and the format reminds me of Fight Against Crime but I don't have any other information. 

The Text story seems to be a reprint from Fight Against Crime 10 (Pro- Con- etc.) by Ellen Flynn.

Check out the insane cover on this UK PCH book. Never seen this one before.

Notice how they discreetly covered up her wrist with the dress. USA would’ve shown the bloody stump! :sumo:

You are a true patriot, sir. lol 

The book is full of 1950s Atlas reprints, and the UK cover art is actually a swipe from the end panel of an Atlas story called "Collector's Item" (hence the cover blurb). But as far as I know, no equivalent US cover exists.
