Pantheon by Sam Bourne

A real page turner that saw me start and finish this book within 24 hours. Sam Bourne is a pseudonym of journalist and broadcaster Jonathan Freedland. He lives in London with his wife and two children and writes for The Guardian for whom he was previously Washington correspondent. This novel draws on that background, being set both in England and America during WWII prior to the US’s involvement. It contains the expected high level espionage, clandestine meetings and secret societies on both sides of the Atlantic with an unexpected foray into the world of eugenics.

This is Sam Bourne’s sixth novel and I will be seeking out his previous works when next looking for a pacey intelligent British thriller.
