I found Thomas M. Daniel's Death Comes to Machu Picchu reminiscent of Agatha Christie's novels, Ten Little Indians and Murder on the Orient Express.

Readers are introduced to a number of characters who all, for whatever reason, end up the night of Christmas Eve at an inn clinging to the side of the mountain on which Machu Picchu was built by the Inca Empire in the fifteenth century.

The small village draws many tourists who plan to walk through the ruins of Machu Picchu and gain an understanding of how the people of that time lived and worshiped.

A violent storm rages through the area as the residents of the inn sit down to a lovely dinner. Then they all realize one guest is missing. The absent man is later found dead, almost completely covered by snow. The mystery in this plot is to discover who might have killed this man, whom no one liked.

Don't read the ending before you get there. That would spoil discovering a clever plot twist.
