Philip Palmer, the best-selling author of Hell Ship, crafts science fiction works that have earned him a reputation as one of the best in the business. In Artemis, con artist and killer Artemis McIvor took the collapse of the galactic government as the opportunity to go on a crime spree to end all crime sprees. But when the law finally catches up to her, she’s given a choice: spend the rest of her life cooling her heels in prison or accept a deadly mission to save all of humanity.

The book was nothing like its description. It was a suggested book at the end of the On The Edge Series which was absolutely amazing. I was expecting Artemis to be good as well. The narrator didn't help make the book interesting.
I listened to the Riyria Revelations by Michael J. Sullivan (a great book with an excellent narrator- Tim Gerard Reynolds).
If it was a different book or majorly edited with a different narrator, it would have been much better.
The book was so boring and lacking in any entertainment. I always love getting in the car to listen to books while I drive, but with this one I dreaded driving anywhere to have to listen to it. I'm not sure if you can pass out zero stars, if that's possible it would be a zero.
I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!
This is written in the first person. The story jumps around a bit. I had to re-listen to parts of the story in order to keep things straight. I did enjoy the story. It was interesting to have a science fiction story with emphasis on the characters. This is first story I have listened to by Philip Palmer. I have added him to my list of authors. I enjoyed Heather O'Neill's narration. Robert Ian Mackenzie does a good job too. At first I thought his inserts were actually from the editor.
This book is over the top and just not my type of story. I can handle and often like a story with crass comments but this book just has so much of that and not a lot else.
