A heist story set on the Moon – early PR for Andy Weir’s new novel: Artemis.

The bestselling author of The Martian returns with a new near-future thriller.

According to Penguin Random House:

“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, explains the PR blurb. “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.”
