Eric McFarlane's debut crime novel, A Clear Solution is a hilarious look at what happens when you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time – complete with homicidal bank managers.
All that lab technician Daniel Dreghorn wants is a better job, more money, a new flat - oh, and perhaps to meet a few more girls. It's not much to ask of life, is it? All his dreams are answered with one visit to a faulty cash machine, but is it too good to be true? Yes, Daniel, it is...
Daniel's life goes from bad to mad as a series of deaths are attributed to him and some very shady characters start to believe he is more than he seems. As Daniel's colleagues at the university become suspicious of his actions, madcap Professor Farquharson sees him as a way of achieving a long-held desire... Can Daniel avoid being drawn into his boss's crazy schemes? Can he avoid the attentions of a bent copper? Are Dr Bernini's doughnuts all they seem to be?
