Five top faked deaths in fiction

David Nobbs is an English comedy writer and novelist.

For the Telegraph he tagged five top faked deaths in fiction, including:
In Raymond Chandler’s world, very little is as it seems, so surely drunken Terry Lennox hasn’t really committed suicide in The Long Goodbye (1953)? You have to read right to the end of this complex, beautifully written book to find out.
Read about the other books Nobbs noted.

The Long Goodbye is on John Mullan's list of ten of the best fake deaths in fiction.
