Tim Maleeny on Jump

Here is a clip from my Ashland Mystery interview with author Tim Maleeny from May 2010. Among other things, we were talking about his book Jump, which the Boston Globe described this way: “If you threw in the air the pages of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express and Elmore Leonard’s Get Shorty, and then invited Monty Python to stitch them back together, you might end up with something like Jump, Tim Maleeny’s hilarious novel.”

By day Tim Maleeny is the head of Strategic Planning at the New York ad firm Ogilvy & Mather. He has a degree in computer science from Dartmouth and an MBA from Columbia Business School.

Watch for more Maleeny clips later this year.
