One Last Job, by Warren Bull
This is Bull's second appearance in this blog.
Our hero is a private eye. He survived World War II and has survivor's guilt about that, but he may not have it much longer, because cancer is killing him. A friend offers him one last job: track down a beautiful woman who has gone missing.
He does, but the reason she is being hunted is not any of the reasons you might expect. And before he can decide what to do about that something happens which he actually did expect: a bank robbery. And he and the young woman both have to decide what to do about that.
Snappy dialog between the two main characters. Nice surprise (but not a twist) ending.
