Brief Synopsis:
College dorm residents are falling to their deaths while elevator surfing. Is it
murder?
Quality:
Excellent, almost no errors.
Long Synopsis:
HEATHER WELLS ROCKS! Or. at least, she did. That was- before she left the pop-idol life behind after she gained a dress size or two?and lost a boyfriend, a recording contract, and her life savings (when Mom took the money and ran off to Argentina). Now that the glamour and glory days of endless mall appearances are in the past, Heather's perfectly happy with her new size 12 shape (the average for the American woman!) and her new job as an assistant dorm director at one of New York's top colleges. That is, until the dead body of a female student from Heather's residence hall is discovered at the bottom of an elevator shaft. The cops and the college president are ready to chalk the death off as an accident, the result of reckless youthful mischief. But Heather knows teenage girls . . . and girls do not elevator surf. Yet no one wants to listen?not the police, her colleagues, or the P.I. who owns the brownstone where she lives?even when more students start turning up dead in equally ordinary and subtly sinister ways. So Heather makes the decision to take on yet another new career: as spunky girl detective! But her new job comes with few benefits, no cheering crowds, and lots of liabilities, some of them potentially fatal. And nothing ticks off a killer more than a portly ex-pop star who's sticking her nose where it doesn't
belong . . .

Hi all,

Um, E., did you mean the description of Track Of The Cat, by Nevada Barr? Anna Pigeon portly? Um, no, don't think so, and no size 12 isn't portly. Size 18 maybe or even 20 but not 12.

Original message:
I notice the description of size 12 is not Fat refers to the size 12
woman as "portly".

Perhaps we can delete that word from the description of the mystery.

Surely size 12 is far from "portly".  I dislike the thin under all
circumstances media campaign particularly when "normal woman" is
described as "portly".
