Pompeii by Robert Harris - a very readable (and accurate) description of the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius
The Angel of Forgetfulness by Steve Stern - an interesting book, that blends a story of the Lowe East Side in NY with time travel and a bit of fantasy. The main characters are two men and an angel.
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova - A different type of vampire story, as a young woman tries to sort out her family's past and she finds connections to Vlad the Impaler.
I have read and enjoyed all three books and recommend them highly!
