What do you do when the Big Apple bites back?
San Fernando Valley native Iris Hedge left her husband and traded coasts for the job of a lifetime, only to lose it in a New York minute. Now unattached, unemployed, and broke, she dreads her loneliness and imminent credit card bills, until she offered an exciting, new gig: spying on a possibly cheating, uptown husband named Steve.
Soon Iris is trading her business wardrobe for the stalker chic of sweatpants and dark eyewear, and navigating the hazards of urban surveillance--Central Park's harsh dog-walking rules, rejection from exclusive boutiques, and a series of unnatural hair colors. But as she steps into uncharted territory, she wonders if her life will ever go back to normal--and if normal is anything she--will ever be happy with again.
