** Before he dies, he or the assassin leaves a enigmatic clue which prompts the responsible governmental agency to ask for the protagonist's help.
** The male protagonist is teamed up with a nubile [[PluckyGirl female]] [[TheWatson sidekick]]. She'll be brilliant, but the protagonist will find a way to make her look just a hair less intelligent than he is. A good example is Sienna Brooks in Inferno. She's got a [[IncrediblyLamePun mind-blowing]] IQ, but [[MenAreBetterThanWomen Robert Langdon quickly asserts his perceived greater knowledge]] by tossing out esoteric anecdotes on Florentine art, and throughout the book Sienna tells him in one way or the other that he's probably smarter than she is.
