Rohan (ro_han_solo) | 1 comments So, I read this spy/detective novel 8-9 years ago. In this novel, there's a detective guy who takes a case in hand and this case takes him around the world to (probably) Macau or Bangkok or any Asian city, I don't exactly remember. There's a coffin involved. There's also a discussion at the start of the book where the surname that starts with Mc of some policeman would be Irish was discussed. Now this detective has a neighbor and as far as I remember the neighbor is the criminal. I also remember a Cadillac that is plot point. It was a series of novels as I remember another novel in the series which had a cover page that resembled the poster for the James Bond spy movie "For your Eyes Only".
