How do the characters learn who is plotting against them?

Hmm, capture one underling! And they know him because he's a hireling and they've gone to the same places, looking to be hired!

And how do we trick him into revealing truth? Which would be a lot more sensible a question if I hadn't given one character the ability to force him to speak the truth long before I invented this captive to question. . . .

Fun, juggling ideas at this stage.
