Not quite what the OP was asking for, but I was reminded of the solution to the asmiov black widowers mystery ‘a sunday in april.’
[spoiler]Mario Gonzalo tells the black widowers about how his sister was murdered in her own home, how he had been having a bad weekend, gone to bed saturday night, woke on Sunday morning at eight AM, as was his lot because of a consistent internal clock, and answered the phone a few minutes later. It was his brother, who immediately apologized for calling so early and asked if he had woken Mario. “No, it’s a few minutes after eight, of course I’m awake, sheez” was the reply.
The brother-in-law went on to say that he’d had a huge fight with his wife, Mario’s sister, and needed to talk, and they met at a nearby place for breakfast and ended up going fishing for a few days or something like that. On returning to the city, Mario found that the clock in his apartment had stopped, and the brother-in-law found that the sister had died, apparently killed by burglars in a break-in. Based on Mario’s testimony, the police decided that junkies had probably seen the brother-in-law leaving, come in to find something that they could sell for drug money, not expecting there to be another person, still home.
The other black widowers express their regret, but are unable to add anything to the police conclusion. Henry, the brilliant waiter, asks Mario to leave and then come back to the restaurant afterwards. He points out, based on certain clues from the story, that the night before his sister was killed was the one that the clocks would have been set forward, and Mario had apparently not noticed that. When his brother called and Mario, based on his own internal clock and the clock in his apartment, said that it was a few minutes after eight, it was actually a few minutes after nine. The brother-in-law had killed Mario’s sister and used Mario to construct an alibi for himself, one that Mario had never noticed afterward because of his clock in the apartment stopping.
A bit of an unlikely tale perhaps, but it does fit with the theme of committing (or covering up) a crime through daylight savings time. In later stories it is mentioned that Mario, after some soul-searching, goes to the police to recant his alibi. I’m not sure if it’s mentioned whether the brother-in-law is prosecuted after all.[/spoiler]
