Agatha Christie: Three Blind Mice and Other Stories

24 Festive Tasks: Door 17 – Winter Solstice, Book:

Read a book that takes place in December, with ice or snow on the cover, where all events take place in a single day or night, that revolves around the solstice, set in Persia / Iran, China or the American Southwest or prominently featuring Persian / Iranian, Chinese or Native American characters, or a collection of poetry.

The core action of the main entry in this collection — the novella Three Blind Mice (basis for the play The Mousetrap) — all takes place in a single day, and it is also set in winter (even though not explicitly in December).  That’s got to be good enough to make it qualify as my Winter Solstice book.
