The Kennedy Moment by Peter Adamson (hardback)

A reunion of friends and lovers; a conspiracy that begins as a joke; a secret to be kept for thirty years—this is a daring, ingenious and profoundly moving political thriller from an author whose career has put him at the very heart of international affairs. Praise for previous books: ’At the end I was weeping with happiness. A beautiful, subtle book’ —William Nicholson ‘The most consistently intelligent and fascinating novel I’ve read in a long time. Mesmeric.’ —Margaret Forster ‘His characters are both representative of large ideas and yet also fully human … it’s a huge achievement.’ —Alain de Botton Hardback: pages 368 Size: 15.cm x 23.4cm

‘Nothing could be simpler… Don’t wear a suit’

Dr Michael Lowell—a mild–mannered American, unshakeably decent and at the top of his profession—accepts an invitation to a weekend reunion of Oxford college friends. He is looking forward to meeting some of them—including front-line Canadian medic Hélène Hevré and the Australian advertising genius Toby Jenks. But the big attraction is the serene young woman from Karachi who rejected him twenty years ago because he was ‘just a little bit too dull’.

As the weekend gets under way and old loves and tensions arise, an audacious suggestion is made. It begins as a joke. But it is a joke that none of them can forget.

Moving between Oxford, New York, Washington, Geneva and Abidjan, this compelling political thriller is the story of five ordinary people who find themselves drawn into an extraordinary conspiracy—a gamble that could force the hand of governments and affect the lives of millions. But if it should go wrong …

Daring, ingenious and profoundly moving, The Kennedy Moment is masterful storytelling from an author whose career has put him at the heart of international affairs.
