I'm currently writing an urban fantasy mystery, and I'm having some difficulties. Before I get into my problem, here's some background on the story: Recent global events have made it necessary for those with power over the elements of nature, known as Talents, to come out of the enchanted wardrobe and let the world know that magic is real. My MC, Riley, is such a Talent, from a family of Talents, and works as a graphic designer. His uncle is murdered, and a deadly family curse demands that he hunt down the killer, or he'll be joining his uncle. I know my characters pretty well by now, and I know the setting and the general direction in which I want the plot to go. I know whodunnit and how it was dun. I know why things are happening. But here's what's tripping me up: How does Riley learn about the curse? I've tried a couple different methods, but none have felt just right. Any thoughts?
