Why conspiracies?
What is it about conspiracies that captivates us? Most of us know that explanations are usually a lot simpler than a conspiracy. And yet. . . What if the government really IS covering up an alien landing at Roswell? What if the CIA did kill JFK? What if the worldwide shadow government really does control us all? Not likely, but it's still fun to read about.

Conspiracy thrillers
Robert Ludlum is often called the father of the conspiracy thriller novel, but in some ways the genre stretches back at least fifty years earlier to Sax Rohmer. So we'll call Ludlum the father of the modern conspiracy thriller. To date, no author has produced so many quality novels revolving solely around conspiracy. Dan Brown popularized the idea of a historical conspiracy thriller, but he was far from the first to do it. Katherine Neville's earlier novel The Eight is perhaps one of the finest examples. These days, a lot of authors blend different types of conspiracies with hard-hitting action; James Rollins and Steve Berry are good examples of this. In any case, good conspiracy thrillers abound. Below are a few of them:
Transfer of Power (Mitch Rapp Book 3)
2012: The Fifth World (A Simon Gray Thriller)
The President's Henchman (Jim McGill Book 1)
Blowback: A Thriller (Scot Harvath Book 4)
The Kill Artist (Gabriel Allon Book 1)
The Bourne Identity: Jason Bourne Book #1
New World Orders
Crack-Up: A Psychological Thriller
Trojan Horse
The Emperor's Tomb (with bonus short story The Balkan Escape): A Novel (Cotton Malone)
The Devil Colony: A Sigma Force Novel (Sigma Force Novels)
Angels & Demons
The Essential Sax Rohmer Collection (15 books) (Illustrated)
