Life in the moon colony Artemis isn’t easy, unless you’re rich.   Jasmine “Jazz” Bashara isn’t rich; she’s just trying to make a living and move out of her “coffin” apartment with it’s communal bathroom.   Jazz will do just about anything to make that happen, including smuggling Earth luxuries into Artemis for her wealthy clients.  When one of those clients offers her a vast amount of slugs (moon money) to take out a rival businessman, Jasmine jumps at the chance to change her life. What starts as a complicated, but doable, task quickly spirals out of control. Jazz soon finds herself being targeted by some powerful enemies and discovers Artemis’s dirty secrets.  Fast paced, packed with humor and intrigue, Artemis is a solid fun read.  Great for fans of sci-fi and regular fiction alike.
