I just finished Gene Wolfe's An Evil Guest. I'm not sure I love the ending, though it isn't a bad ending per se. I do like the pacing. It's much bouncier than a lot of Wolfe's recent work. For about half to two thirds of the novel, it feels like a cross between Hitchcock, screwball comedy, and the sort of sharpness of movies like All About Eve. And there's a lot of references I caught, so there are probably several I didn't catch.
