I wasn't really trying to solve the mystery, the idea just sort of popped in my head.

This thread needs to be bookmarked! (Already did, haha.) I think the one book that really got me to enjoy the plot twists would be Gone Girl (and the movie / direction was amazing also, and lived up to my expectations).

I Am Not A Serial Killer (John Cleaver #1) by Dan Wells GR Link
The "twist" happens around page 100. Depending on what kind of reader you are you will either hurl the book across the room or go bonkers and read the rest of the book that day.
I personally loved it.

Synopsis here
Spoiler:

John Wayne Cleaver is dangerous, and he knows it.
He’s spent his life doing his best not to live up to his potential.
He’s obsessed with serial killers, but really doesn’t want to become one. So for his own sake, and the safety of those around him, he lives by rigid rules he’s written for himself, practicing normal life as if it were a private religion that could save him from damnation.
Dead bodies are normal to John. He likes them, actually. They don’t demand or expect the empathy he’s unable to offer. Perhaps that’s what gives him the objectivity to recognize that there’s something different about the body the police have just found behind the Wash-n-Dry Laundromat---and to appreciate what that difference means.
Now, for the first time, John has to confront a danger outside himself, a threat he can’t control, a menace to everything and everyone he would love, if only he could.
Dan Wells’s debut novel is the first volume of a trilogy that will keep you awake and then haunt your dreams.

I just recommended Megan Whalen Turner's "The Thief" in another thread, but it fits here too. http://meganwhalenturner.org/NovelsThief.html

Another one is Sarah Rees Brennan's "Demon's Lexicon". (I was about to link to the author page for the book, but there's a spoiler in the description of a later book in the series. The Goodreads page for it is spoilerish too, so be wary if you go looking for it. This description is spoiler free, though: http://whatever.scalzi.com/2009/06/2...-rees-brennan/

Both these are first in series, but can stand on their own. For both, there are twists in the later books in the series, too. They are really, really good, with twists that made me want to reread immediately, to pick up hints and foreshadowings.

I'm going to throw in the mystery "Murder at Mt. Fuji" by Shizuko Natsuki. It starts out with a disappointingly obvious murder, but it gets curiouser and curiouser as the plot unfolds. Twists right to the end.

Hmm, no English ebook version available.

@hildea: Megan Whalen Turner's "The Thief" is one of my all time favorites. I had a slight prediction at the start of the book wherein I had an idea of the possible twist, but Magen Whalen Turner's righting is so good she still had me grasp more for the details and still had me surprised at the reveal on the latter part.
