I've read four novels by Robert Harris. The first one he ever published "Fatherland" is a intriguing mystery with a hit you over the head twist. The only catch is that you have to keep an open mind to the term "fictional reality.

Harris's fourth fictional title "Pompeii" is probably a better novel than Fatherland. The two he published in between those novels (Enigma and Archangel) both kind of miss the mark. Enigma is for lack of a better term "boring" although the twist at the end is rather interesting. This novel "Archangel" is better paced then Enigma and is a great source for everything you wanted to know about Josef Stalin, but it also borders on "silly" and falls far short of Fatherland and Pompei. Because of the high remarks which I give to Pompei, I still look forward to reading Harris's other Roman themed story "Imperium"
