Spy Smasher

I thought I had already posted an adventure of Spy Smasher, but on second look, I could not find one, so here is one from 1942.  Posted on Four Color Shadows, Spy Smasher journeys to occupied Paris looking for an American traitor, only to find a Resistance hero!  The dialogue is a little over-the-top, even for the 1940's, but the plot is not bad.
