The new high concept thriller from the number one best selling author of The Righteous Men

1940. Europe is ablaze. America is undecided about joining the fight against Nazism. And James Zennor, a brilliant, troubled, young Oxford don is horrified. He returns from rowing one morning to discover that his wife has disappeared with their young son, leaving only a note declaring her continuing love.

A frantic search through wartime England leads James across the Atlantic and to one of America’s greatest universities, its elite clubs and secret societies – right to the heart of the American establishment. And in his hunt for his family, James unearths one of the darkest and deadliest secrets of a world at war…


  • 'Pantheon is a propulsive, satisfying novel which burns with moral indignation, earning Bourne his place at the thriller-writers' high table.'


  • '(*****Five Star review) Shifting his focus from hi-tech present day conspiracies to a very dark chapter of the second world war, Bourne has proved he can more than rub shoulders with the likes of John Le Carre and Robert Harris. '


  • 'A barrelling page-turner... a shoot-from-the-hip chase thriller in the Hitchcock tradition. '


  • 'Ingeniously constructed, a page-turner which maintains the tension well'


  • 'Pantheon is an absorbing page-turner with a dark background.'
