They’d been best friends for over two decades, well before Claire entered the picture. If Paul had found his father’s movies after his parents’ accident, surely he would have gone to Adam to talk about it. Had they hatched a plan then to keep the business going? Had they both watched the films together and realized that they weren’t repulsed by, but attracted to, the violent images?
