A Long Goodbye is a story written by Raymond Chandler. In this book Marlowe is involved in a short case that comes to a quick close and then starts another case. You just know the two have to be connected, or they wouldn’t both be in the book, but you can’t figure out how, but they do. And the end of the book has an unexpected twist. You seem to suspect this twist, but the closer you get to the end it seems unlikely, but it still ambushes you.
