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.

Whilst Mark Watney in the Martian was funny and engaging. The main character in this book, Jazz, is irritating and smug. Makes this book a hard listen

Really enjoyed story even though there is too many characters. The Saudi plot is just not necessary

Narrators accents had me laughing at inappropriate times. The DA sounds like Vito Corleone
