Interview: Alan Orloff, author of Killer Routine

For the May edition of The Writer’s Center podcast series, I sat down with mystery novelist Alan Orloff, author of the Agatha Award-nominated Diamonds for the Dead, his standalone debut, and of Killer Routine, the first book in the new Last Laff series. The new novel features Channing Hayes, a stand-up comedian whose tragic past colors his investigations into a fellow comic’s disappearance. The interview can be heard here, and Orloff himself will be appearing at The Writer’s Center this Sunday afternoon, May 22, with novelist Ann McLaughlin as part of the Center’s Open Door Reading Series.  — Art Taylor
