WELCOME TO ARTEMIS:
THE FIRST CITY ON THE MOON
Jazz Bashara is a criminal.
Life in the lunar city of Artemis 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 is offered a score too lucrative to turn down – if she can plan the perfect crime – and survive it…
And in a city on the moon, there’s only one rule for criminals: don’t get caught.
The Sunday Times bestselling author of The Martian is back with a new classic – a twisty, smart, genre- busting, high concept thriller about a heist set on the moon featuring a strong, sassy, kick-ass heroine.
ANDY WEIR built a career as a software engineer until the success of The Martian allowed him to write full-time. He is a lifelong space nerd and devoted hobbyist of subjects such as orbital mechanics and the history of manned spaceflight. The Martian was a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller and has SOLD 5 MILLION COPIES in the English language. It went on to become a major motion picture from 20th Century Fox, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Matt Damon. Film rights to Artemis have already been sold to 20th Century Fox.
