One reason for this is that Tay doesn't need the job. He has inherited enough money from his parents to live comfortably.

Unfortunately, he becomes a victim of the bombing. As he recuperates, Inspector Tay becomes restless. As soon as he can, he gets the doctors to release him. As you can imagine, the explosions are the greatest crime in the history of Singapore. And Tay wants to be a part of the investigation.
Instead, he is assigned to investigate a dead body report in one of the poorest parts of Singapore. When Tay observes the body, the victim seems familiar to him.

He's a veteran investigator for CID who's nearly 50 years old, out of shape, smokes way too much and does not play nicely with others. He's just a socially awkward man. Lives alone, never been married, doesn't have any kids or very many friends.

But he does not give up on a case even when he rubs everybody the wrong way. The Umbrella Man has a great Singapore setting, an engaging plot with a terrorist bombing which rocks the city, and the seemingly insignificant murder case to which Tay is assigned--while everyone else in the CID is investigating the bombings.
He doesn't feel very happy about that. Twenty years in CID and certain people don't want him on the bombings--he ruffled too many feathers in the first Inspector Tay novel.

In a burning barn a body is found--and the fire isn't the cause of death. The detectives working the case have a pretty good idea about what went down. But Officer Oliver thinks it's something else entirely, and pursues a truth others would prefer remain hidden - others who will go to extreme lengths to keep him quiet.
