Like the fact that his face would appear to be a patently obvious latex mask, devised by a Hollywood makeup artist.
Oh, right, that.
Well, listen. I've done some research into Mr. Soneji, and I've come to a conclusion: He's going to try to kidnap Megan Rose.
Yep. And I've had an idea: What if we let him kidnap the girl, and then kidnap her from his lair, and then pretend to be him—using the same voice-distortion device that he uses—and then demand a ransom? No one would ever suspect us! The investigators would nab Soneji, and we'd get away with the money! And I can work with the lead investigator on the case, thereby throwing him off the scent! I'm certain he'll be the sort of lone-wolf investigator who'd never bother working closely with the law enforcement authorities to discover any holes in my story. And finally, once we've got the money, I can arrange things in just such a way that Soneji comes after me, necessitating his execution and allowing us to get off scot-free!
Man, Jezzie, that's one seriously complex plan.
