The bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new science-fiction 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 Jazz’s 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 more unlikely than the first.

FOLLOWUP TO AN INCREDIBLE SMASH HIT: THE MARTIAN’s success is nothing short of breathtaking. 3.5 million copies shipped. A year and a half on the New York Times bestseller list—with twenty-plus weeks at #1. And still selling strong today. It’s truly become a new science-fiction classic.

EAGERLY ANTICIPATED BY READERS: The 270,000 five-star ratings on Goodreads are just the tip of the iceberg—fans loved THE MARTIAN and are hungry for more.

THE ANDY WEIR MAGIC: Here, Andy delivers a lovable, wisecracking protagonist every bit as memorable as Mark Watney; smart, detailed worldbuilding based in real science; and most of all, the charm and sheer sense of fun that made THE MARTIAN so irresistible—all of it wrapped up in a twisty heist tale.

ACCESSIBLE AND GROUNDED: Andy has done a truly brilliant job creating the city of Artemis and making it into a character here—yet, as in THE MARTIAN, every element of the setting and story is firmly rooted in present-day capabilities and science, no aliens or ray guns or wormholes to contend with. It’s smart science fiction that you don’t have to be a science-fiction reader to appreciate.

PERFECT AMBASSADOR: In the years since THE MARTIAN’s publication, Andy’s made a remarkable superhero transformation from mild-mannered geek to dream celebrity author. Charming, charismatic, with just the right amount of self-deprecating nerdery, he’s now made dozens of media appearances, spoken to thousands at places like Google and NASA, hobnobbed on Hollywood red carpets, written and produced a network TV pilot, even testified before a Senate subcommittee—befriending geek idols like Chris Hadfield, George RR Martin, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson along the way. He’ll be a great asset to us here.

ANDY WEIR built a career as a software engineer until the runaway success of his debut novel, THE MARTIAN, allowed him to write fulltime. He is a lifelong space nerd and a devoted hobbyist of subjects such as relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight. He lives in California.
