Non-Murder Mysteries

Novels about a mystery of some kind, but not a "who killed ____." This could be a mystery the characters are trying to solve ("why did she kill herself?") or a mystery the reader is trying to solve ("why is this formerly well-adjusted high achieving character such a wreck now?") It could even be a "WHY did that person kill ____?" Just not "WHO?" All novels have little mysteries, but for books on this list the reader (and, probably, the characters) must spend a significant portion of the book trying to figure something out.
