“Artemis” has a lot going for it. It has the same sort of zippy adventure vibe that made “The Martian” such an engaging, page-turning read. It invites the reader to consume it in big chunks, with a constant sense of the kinetic ... [n]o one straddles the line between hard and soft sci-fi quite like Andy Weir does.

Synopsis

The bestselling 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.
