I got some friends and a couple of writers to read over an outline of my story to see if it all holds together and it works. Basically the villain is a serial killer type who keeps getting away with it and dodging the police. The police do not know who it is. However, one cop who has a grudge against him because of something in the past wants to bring him down, even if he has to do it on his own time. He figures out who the killer might be and needs to do something to smoke him out and get him to implicate himself, if that makes sense. Basically he calls the killer and threatens him saying he has evidence on him and if he wants it back, come and get it. He hangs up and hopes this will get the suspect to go through a series of actions to get him to a certain place to implicate himself. It's kind of like a scene like this from the movie 8MM (1999), just as an example. Please pardon the foul language in it. However, I got some negative feedback from a couple of readers saying my villain would not fall for it. He has been so smart to evade the police and all the murder investigations over the years that he would not fall for a bluff, and see it for what it is. If the main cop after him, which he does not know is after him, called him and threatened him like that, he would just say to him something like "If you had anything on me, I would be in custody right now", and he would hang up the phone and go about his day. He would not fall for a bluff, and do something to incriminate himself, since he is so smart and it's inconsistent with his character. What do you think? Is this a problem, and he cannot be fooled into a situation where he would drop his guard and give the cop a lead, which is what I want?
