Jane Morgan is a prominent and accomplished lawyer--or was, until a nosey neighbor spotted her in the throes of some midnight passion on her Midtown building's rooftop and tattled. Now, Jane's lost everything: her career, her social life, and the freedom to leave her apartment.
To make matters worse, the loathsome elderly neighbor who reported her winds up dead from an apparent poisoning--and in a last act of vengeance leaves behind a note implicating Jane as suspect number one.
With the help of her twin sister, Jackleen, a reticent felon named Perry, and a budding TikTok career, Jane just may be able to clear her name, restart her career, and find love--if she can ever leave the house again!
