RARA-AVIS: Guilty Bystander - Christie?

So I finished Guilty Bystander this morning. In my post yesterday I said it displayed intelligent writing, and I haven't changed my opinion. It was very hard-boiled and packed with action, not much noir-feeling, but maybe slightly dark plot-wise. However, when I reached the end I felt something I never encountered before in these kind of books. When the solution unfolded it was done in a way that made me feel I was reading a hard-boiled...Agatha Christie ??!! The way the pieces of the puzzle were put together and told was like...a puzzle with a twist. It was even told with two people sitting down in a rocking chair and on a bed, like Hercule Poirot with a friend. Did someone of you who read it get the same feeling? I was very surprised by this. Left a not-so-good flavour on my hard-boiled/noir tastebuds.
