Product Description

Based on meticulous research into thousands of pages of court records, FBI transcripts and documents, and scores of interviews with the people involved, including Thad Roberts, the New York Times bestselling author (The Accidental Billionaires, the basis for the Oscar-winning film The Social Network) – with his signature high-velocity swagger – reconstructs this madcap story of genius, love, and duplicity all centered on a heist that reads like a Hollywood thrill ride. Thad Roberts, a college student and co-op in a prestigious NASA program has an idea – a romantic, albeit crazy, idea. He wants to give his girlfriend the moon. Literally. Thad convinces her and another female accomplice, both NASA interns, to break into an impenetrable laboratory at NASA - past security checkpoints, an electronically locked door with cipher security codes, and camera-lined hallways – and help him steal the most precious objects in the world: moon rocks from every Apollo landing. Enter Axel Emmermann, a quality control supervisor residing in Belgium, who is also an avid rock collector and charter board member of Antwerp’s Mineral Club; whose curiosity is piqued when he comes across an unusual e-mail: “I have in my possession a rare, multi-carat moon rock I am trying to find a buyer for.” 308p.

Editorial Reviews

NASA fellow Thad Roberts wanted to charm his girlfriend, so he convinced her and another friend, both NASA interns, to help him get past all those security checkpoints and steal some moon rocks. Considering how wacky this sounds and that best-selling author Mezrich wrote both The Accidental Billionaires (the basis for the film The Social Network) and Bringing Down the House (the basis for the film 21), this would seem to be a winner.
