George R.R. Martin's series A Song of Ice and Fire, especially the first 
three -- A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, and a Storm of Swords, 
draw inspiration from the War of the Roses and many of the characters 
share traits (often in different combinations) with Shakespeare's 
characters, including Richard III.

It's not a novel, but the BBC series "House of Cards" is a clear 
parallel, in many respects a deliberate one. There were two more sets of 
programs in this series, the second of which has Lear parallels and the 
final one Macbeth.

Dear Ken,

I'm really enjoying other people's suggestions in this thread, so I hope 
these contributions are up to scratch.

Josephine Tay's _Daughter of Time_

Mario Puzzo's _Godfather_ (or perhaps better watched in the film version?)

Bram Stoker's _Dracula_ - after all, if you want irresistible power 
irresistibly corrupting, despite the lavish digressions into scenery, 
it's about as classic as I get on a Friday afternoon.

Carol

A more accurate analogy might be made to the Spanish Civil War and 
Orwell's
Homage to Catalonia.
