I loved it too - was a bit disappointed by the "next shadows of the wind" - the thirteenth tale by diane setterfield, so don't go there!! Personally I loved Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky - not a similar type of book but beautifully written - the incompleteness adds to it. In terms of the mystery-type genre, I have recently read several Wilkie Collins novels - particularly the Moonstone stands out, as does Armadale - fascinating stories, even though sometimes some of the characters can be a bit nineteenth-century-simpering but not Jane Austen levels!! Hope you find one you enjoy...
Cheers, Wendy

The Book of Unholy Mischief by Elle Newmark

A book in a similar-ish vein, which I also think is superior to this novel, is 'The Two Deaths of Senora Puccini', by Stephen Dobyns. I don't know how easy it would be to get your hands on it; my high school English teacher lent me his copy as it had been withdrawn from print. It is set in a conflict-beset South American city, where a group of middle-aged men are invited to a school reunion dinner at the house of their most enigmatic companion. The novel explores the friends' past and present relationships and experiences, and the intrigue surrounded the eponymous housekeeper. Really worth tracking down if you enjoyed TSOTW.

For a complex but page-turning mystery try The Quincunx by Charles Palliser. Also try Meaning of the Night by Micheal Cox.

Florence and Giles has sold 40,000 copies in hardback in Italy where it was promoted 'If you loved Shadow of the Wind you'll love this. The resemblance is a book about books and words, forbidden reading, and the supernatural.

Carlos Ruiz Zafon has released another few which contain the same characters- they are as compelling and as beautiful.
