The best-selling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller - a heist story set on the moon.

Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.

Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she's stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself - and that now her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.

Review of 'Artemis' on 'Goodreads'

2 stars

The frank and conversational style that worked so well for The Martian did not work for me in this book. It reads more like a young adult novel with all the expected moral lessons and simple story lines. Ultimately the unlikely characterizations, rather than the far-out setting, made the whole seem contrived.
