Your heroine discovers that a man is being set up for murder. She decides to tell the man (your hero) about what she learned. How does she discover the murder plot? What happens when she tells him? Does he believe her?
Maybe he doesn’t believe her, the person is murdered and the cops show up at his doorstep. He has to call her for help and together they prove he didn’t kill anyone. And maybe the real murderer tries to kill them before they solve the mystery.
Questions to ponder…
Why is the person murdered?
Why do they set up your hero? What’s his connection?
How does your heroine learn about the murder?
How do they prove his innocence?
