I'm writing a detective story that follows the general formula of a whodunit... 1. Someone is murdered. 2. The police comes. 3. The detective comes. 4. Police underestimates detective. 5. Detective solves the case. The following questions have been bugging me: 1. How plausible/implausible is this scenario regarding the relationship of the policemen and the detectives? 2. Normally, when someone is murdered, what are the normal steps that are taken? 3. Any more tips regarding the plausibility/implausibility of a whodunit? Thanks!!!
