Out of their forgotten ideals and midlife frustrations comes the audacious idea. Suggested in the first instance as a joke, it is a joke that none of them can forget. At a second get-together, this time in New York, they devise their plan. The aim is a great humanitarian advance, but the method is fraught with risk.
A gripping thriller about ordinary people caught up in an extraordinary turn of events.

You'll be hooked
If you could sum up The Kennedy Moment in three words, what would they be?
Exciting, original, thought-provoking
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Kennedy Moment?
When the slightly awkward college reunion turns into an unusual forum for "radicalisation" (also of an unusual sort)
Which scene did you most enjoy?
It would spoil the plot to answer this
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes - but am limited to audio books in the car so had to find excuses for pointless journeys
Any additional comments?
This is a very original novel, it works on several plains, not least in that it pulls the reader in constantly in terms of both judging the actions of the protagonists whilst calling on the reader to evaluate their own stance on important moral and political issues. Adamson has pulled off the late Le Carre trick of writing a work fuelled by anger that remains highly entertaining.The performance by the way is very good: Adam Sims gives a warm, somewhat "lived in" tone to his narration and manages the range of different english accents (US, Uk, Canadian, Aussie) with skill. The characters are well differentiated and developed in this reading.

It's not often you discover a book that covers a subject like international development and is also a thrilling fictional read. This is a fantastic listen, combining excellent character development and a brilliant storyline. The book is also exceptionally interesting, playing dutiful testament to the real story behind smallpox eradication.
