If you haven't read it yet, and I haven't myself having only seen the film version, you may find the basic premise implausible. By the 1960s who is going to believe that the Jews were merely "relocated"? Heavy suspension of disbelief is required for that to work as the basis of a thriller. As for other alternative history set during this period, have you tried Philip K. Dick's Man in the High Castle? It's widely regarded as a classic, I'm not so sure myself, but here's a balanced review.

Books I have actually have read by Harris are Pompeii, Imperium, and Lustrum. Pompeii is excellent. He really nails the detail. I'm not so sure about Imperium and Lustrum though. Fictionalised biographies don't do much for me. I'd recommend Anthony Everitt's quite accessible Cicero: The Life and Times of Rome's Greatest Politician instead.
