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 her 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 riskier than the first.

Now, this made me mortally offended! What would she've said if someone went the same way about welders? (view spoiler)

I saw your 32 hr one and was intimidated into skipping it altogether :)))) No, really, listening for 32 hrs for Mr Paolini's latest is quite the task. I think I'll wait until the paper/ebook get published and only then will go all sci-fi alien artefacts!

Actually, a surprising-ish choice of subject / genre for him, isn't it?

Yes, Alias with Jennifer Garner. She was a kick-ass spy. The show was awesome... well, at least at the beginning. Then she and her co-star Michael Vartan dated and then broke up and the show changed. It didn't get terrible... but her character's epic romance suddenly involved her real-life ex, so they did all kinds of things to keep them apart.

100% - The End (view spoiler)
