Complex plot that will keep you guessing

This novel kept reminding me of Iain Banks' family dramas (such as The Crow Road) - in a good way - but it's not a rip-off by any means. Very complex intergenerational storyline, some of which is inconsequential. Basically, it starts with a death (right at the beginnig so this isn't a spoiler) and the narrative backtracks and seems to be about to reveal what happened. Then an alternative is presented. After that, the reader is bounced between two possible series of events. I liked this very much.
