The Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author of The Martian returns with a new adventure a twisty, smart, high concept thriller about a heist set on the moon.

The #1 New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible near-future adventure.

You grew up on the moon, of course you have a dark side...

Jazz is a small time criminal, subsidising work as a porter on the moon with smuggling a little contraband. But it’s never enough.

When she’s offered the chance to get rich quick she jumps at it. But planning the perfect crime in 1/6th gravity was never going to be easy, especially as there is a conspiracy at the heart of Artemis.

At first it was about the money, then it was about control. Now it’s about survival…

Reviewed by Olivia at Angus & Robertson Bookworld:

The Martian was always going to be a tough act to follow but Andy Weir has definitely delivered with Artemis, a thrilling heist story with a brilliant sci-fi twist. Artemis follows small-time criminal Jazz, scraping by a measly existence on the moon with odd smuggling jobs, who finds her chance to hit the big time with the perfect heist, only to find herself deep in the heart of a conspiracy that threatens more than just her freedom.

Jazz is a fantastic character who has more than earned her place among the legions of roguish yet lovable space smugglers that have dominated sci-fi over the years - one imagines she’d feel right at home alongside Han Solo or Mal Reynolds. The world she inhabits on the world is gritty and complex, a haven to the rich and a hell for the poor, and makes for a perfect backdrop to the gripping ride that this novel takes you on. If you’re looking for your next exciting read for the summer, this is it!

Andy Weir

Andy Weir has always been fascinated by space travel and, like most kids growing up, wanted to be an astronaut. At the age of fifteen he was hired as a programmer for a national laboratory and worked as a software engineer before channelling his creativity into writing fiction.

His book The Martian has gone on to become a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller and a 2014 Richard and Judy Book Club pick, winning multiple international awards.

The Martian is now also a major motion picture from 20th Century Fox, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Matt Damon.
