The protagonists of conspiracy thrillers are often journalists or amateur investigators who find themselves - often inadvertently - pulling on a small thread which unravels a vast web of lies and deception that ultimately goes "all the way to the top."
The best conspiracy novels are those that may actually be true - leaving the reader in an unsettling state of doubt. Dashiell Hammett's 1924 short story "Nightmare Town" is conspiracy fiction of that caliber: he is depicting an Arizona town that exists as part of an insurance-fraud scheme - with his detective slowly uncovering the truth.
