    A promising beginning to a new series

    "Killer Routine," the second mystery by Alan Orloff, certainly has a provocative title. The first in Orloff's Last Laff Mystery series, I wasn't sure if there was a serial killer lurking among its pages. What a relief to find out that he was writing about comedy routines instead of mass murder and mayhem.
    But comedy, I discovered in this book, is a serious business. In fact, many of the people trying so desperately to make a name for themselves in the field of stand-up comedy are really troubled souls. This is especially true of "Killer Routine's" leading character, Channing Hayes. Hayes has survived a tragic auto accident that claimed the life of his fiancée, Lauren. Physically and emotionally scarred-he lost several fingers in the accident-he's put his own promising comedic career on an indefinite hold and becomes co-owner of The Last Laff Comedy Club.
    One of the most promising up-and-coming comics at the club that Hayes mentors is his dead fiancée's sister, Heather. Then Heather disappears right before she's scheduled to make her comedy debut and Hayes, fearing he pushed her too far too fast, begins a search to find her. When Heather's ex-lovers start to turn up dead, well, as I said before, comedy is serious business.
    In Alan Orloff's first mystery, "Diamonds for the Dead," Orloff's protagonist goes on a journey and discovers things about a close family member that he never knew. In his second mystery, Orloff's protagonist goes on a similar journey, but this time discovers things about himself. Well plotted, great characters, and a promising beginning to a new series.
