Lisa Nowak was dedicated, smart, and courageous--one of the first astronauts to fly a space shuttle mission after the horrific 2003 Columbia disaster. But that was before a fit of pure, primal jealousy landed her in an airport parking lot in Florida, where Lisa had a fateful, near-fatal confrontation with the woman believed to be her romantic rival. 
Did Lisa intend to kidnap--or kill--Air Force captain Colleen Shipman because she was involved with fellow astronaut William Oefelein? What was the nature of Lisa's connection with William: True love or dangerous obsession? As the details of Lisa's news-making journey unfolded--she donned a disguise, even wore a diaper during her 900-mile car ride to find Colleen--Americans couldn't help but wonder: Why?
In this captivating account, master crime journalist Diane Fanning goes straight to the heart of the case. Through interviews with key family members, friends, and colleagues, the author reveals for the first time the real story behind the headlines--and casts a light on Lisa's groundbreaking fall from grace.
