It follows the life of porter and smuggler Jasmine "Jazz" Bashara as she gets caught up in a conspiracy for control of the city. The novel's audiobook is narrated by Rosario Dawson.
Artemis is named after the Greek goddess of the moon, the sister of Apollo (namesake of the Apollo moon program).
n Artemis, the first city on the Moon, porter and part-time smuggler Jasmine "Jazz" Bashara delivers contraband cigars to the wealthy businessman Trond Landvik. Although Jazz is well acquainted with Trond and his daughter Lene, she meets a new associate there named Jin Chu who holds a mysterious case marked with the name ZAFO. Trond announces a plan to extend his business by taking over Sanchez Aluminum, and he offers Jazz a life-changing sum of money to help him. Sanchez is a company on the moon that extracts aluminum from anorthite rocks, a process which requires 80% of the electricity from Artemis' nuclear reactors but provides the city's entire oxygen supply as a by-product. Jazz accepts the mission, which is to sabotage Sanchez's anorthite harvesters so that Trond can step in with his own.
