* Subverted in the LordPeterWimsey novel ''Whose Body?'' with the smug murderer. When he knows the police are close to catching him, he plans to take poison and writes a gloating note to the police and Lord Peter to be found near his body. Unfortunately for him, the police burst in mid-sentence, and he's presumably tried and hanged as a common criminal.

** In the novella ''San Diego 2014: The Last Stand of the California Browncoats'', Elle is trapped in the convention center with no working communications to the outside world and a ZombieApocalypse in progress. She writes an email to her girlfriend on her phone, on the assumption it won't be read until said girlfriend receives Elle's personal effects. When Internet comes back on, the email gets sent automatically. [[spoiler: Since the convention center gets vaporized not very long after, Elle's originally intended mode of delivery wouldn't have worked anyway. At least her girlfriend got that final love letter.]]
