Jana informs Kate that's she is divorcing her husband because he is cheating on her. A couple of days later, Jane's auto is car-jacked and she is shot in the head; she saves her daughter's life by pushing her out of the car when the gangbanger first entered her vehicle. The police arrest Antoine Hurley nd Jane's daughter picks him out of a line-up. After some investigating, Kate thinks the wrong person is in prison; when she starts sleuthing the pieces of the puzzle being to merge, but what she is seeing is a massacre is about to occur that she prays she can prevent.
If her profession didn't emphasize slim, Kate would be more comfortable with her size. She understands the TV camera makes her seem bigger and that society prefers trim people; something she is not and never will be. Ironically readers will admire her for her courage and strength of conviction chasing a news story; while if series fans seen her on TV, we probably wonder how she made it as few plus size women do (Candy Crowley aside). The story line is fast-paced though it turns into a plot that seems over the top of Cameron Arena, but the key to this Fat City Mystery and its fine predecessors (see DYING THIN and A KILLER WORKOUT) is the wonderful heroine who is overall contented in life but has some self-esteem issues.
Meanwhile, her policeman boyfriend Jonathan is back home in England for longer than expected and comes back with a surprise: he's been cheating on her. Their dramatic clash is a real hell-raiser and thankfully, in the course of pursuing the murder, Kate meets a man who woos her with compliments.
This mystery certainly kept me guessing but I was disappointed in its culmination, not really buying the convoluted ending. I wanted to, and will keep reading Lilley's mysteries, but this one seemed abrupt and far-fetched.
