Can anyone recommend a book similar to 'Shutter Island" ?

Hey all,

Just finished reading Shutter Island and thought it was AMAZING! Does anyone have any recommendations on similar books?

I cannot in good conscience say they're SIMILAR but....

Although I’ve not read all of these, following extensive internet research [] I’d venture to suggest that some/all seem to chime to a greater or lesser extent with Dennis Lehane’s novel:

The Wasp Factory – Iain Banks
No Second Chance – Harlen Coben
The Screaming Tree – Phil Lovesey
The Secret History – Donna Tart
The Insult – Rupert Thompson

Methinks this thread needs more love/input, so I'm quite happy for anyone with greater familiarity with Lehane's book and any of the above to point out where my selections fall short.
