Twenty-seven-year-old Zephyr Zuckerman, a tenant in her parents' Greenwich Village apartment building, boasts a BA worth a hundred grand, a fantasy life that rivals Walter Mitty's, a doozy of an ex-boyfriend obsession, and an inability to commit to a career. So when the superintendent of her brownstone is arrested, her parents suggest that she take over his duties. Less than thrilled with the latest blow to her ego, Zephyr contends with her new responsibility by teaming up with cute but surly exterminator Gregory Samson to investigate some titillating secrets about the building's occupants. Clever and romantic, this utterly hilarious tale is a love letter to New York City, where mystery lurks behind every apartment door.
