He claims to have an amazing sixth sense for solving crimes. While looking for Snowy he gave Tintin another woman's dog, named Fritzy. The woman hit MacAdam over the back of the head and took her dog back. Despite being appreciative for his efforts, Tintin eventually dismisses MacAdam and manages to find Snowy himself. When he gets desecrated by lighting a cigar, a man, presumably Sam, grabbed both MacAdam and Snowy leading MacAdam dead.
