Will Murray's Pulp Classics #47
The Green Lama #4 Audiobook
The Clown Who Laughed & The Invisible Enemy
by Kendell Foster Crossen writing as Richard Foster
Read by James C. Lewis. Liner Notes by Will Murray
 
 
Conceived in 1939 at the behest of the editors of Munsey Publications to compete with the juggernaut that The Shadow had become in print, on radio and in film, The Green Lama was the creation of writer Kendell Foster Crossen, who was asked to conjure up a hero who could lure mystery-minded readers away from The Shadow’s loyal legion of followers.
 
Inspired by a Columbia University student named Theos Casimir Barnardwho had journeyed to far-off Tibet to plumb the occult mysteries of Lamaism, Crossen concocted millionaire Jethro Dumont, who did the same.
 
“I was trying to pick a name somewhat like in sound to Lamont Cranston,” Crossen candidly admitted. “You know what I mean, Lamont-Dumont. It was as close as I dared get to Lamont Cranston. A book had just been published about an American who had gone to Tibet and studied and had become a lama, the only white person who ever had at that time. The result was the Green Lama, which the company liked.”
 
Returning to the States, Dumont assumed an alternative identity of the Buddhist cleric, the Reverend Dr. Pali, then began gathering about him a band of civic-minded citizens to join him in his Buddhistic battle against suffering in all forms—particularly those caused by criminals. And aiding him from the shadows, the mysterious Magga, a woman of many faces who has taken an interest in guiding The Green Lama’s campaign against malefactors.
 
The Green Lama really gets around in this volume. First, he infiltrates the Big Top for the unusual adventure called The Clown Who Laughed! Then, relocating to the Windy City in time for a major political convention, he goes head-to-head with a Fifth Column scheme to conquer America from within in the exciting Case of the Invisible Enemy!
 
James C. Lewis returns in the triple role of Jethro Dumont and his emerald-clad aliases, Reverend Dr. Pali and The Green Lama....Om Mani Padme Hum! The Green Lama Knows!

He has worked in radio, television and newspapers in numerous roles — disk jockey, morning talk show host on television, reporter, photographer. For 13 years, he was a TV weatherman in Nashville. He is now a working actor in New York City, appearing in TV commercials and on audiobooks.

More Rousing Adventures of The Green Lama May 12, 2014
Reviewer: Joseph Baneth Allen from Jacksonville, FL United States  
In "The Clown Who Laughed" Dumont is surprised to learn from his lawyer that he actually owns a circus - the lawyer did invest part of Dumont's vast fortune into the traveling show, but suspects that Dumont is being swindled by the manager.  When Dumont goes to investigate, he quickly discovers that the circus is a front for a nationwide murder-for insurance money scheme.
Dumont actually learns a telling, but clue as to who Magga is
Dumont uses a "minor Tibetan mircale" to free himself and Jean from a deadly trap in this outing.
"The Case of the Invisible Enemy" deals with Fifth Columnists seeking to take over the country and turn it into a dictatorship.
As members of the American National Party try to kill The Green Lama, Magga is shocked to discover that The Green Lama loves her and is willing to kill those who he thinks is responsible for her "death."
Highly Recommended!
Five Stars!
