Kathryn Lilley. Dying to Be Thin. New York: Signet, 2007.

After being laid off from her Boston-based TV producer job, Kate Gallagher dreams of becoming an on-air investigative reporter. To do so she needs to lose some weight, so she uses her severance pay as a down-payment for a 12-week weight-loss program at the Hoffman Clinic in Durham. She also agrees to produce a story about her transformation for the local news to pay for the balance. Within 24 hours of arriving in the “Diet Capital of the World,” Kate finds the dead body of the clinic’s founder and she starts using her investigative skills to find the killer. This is the first book in Kathryn Lilley’s Fat City mystery series.
