Jim had a lot of great read-alikes on his podcast -- Graceling, The Tombs of Atuan, Greenwitch, Artimis Fowl, Howl's Moving Castle, The False Prince. I thought I'd try to add some.

If you liked the sense of place in The Thief, you might also like Rosemary Sutcliff's historicals, which are set in various places but always have strong settings. The Eagle Of The Ninth is probably one of the most famous, but I also like her stand-alones, such as Sun Horse, Moon Horse.

If you liked the way clues pointed towards the end, The Westing Game by Raskin has a lot going for it.

I love the Westing Game! There's a newer book in that same puzzle-solving style called The Gollywhopper Games which is fun too.
