The Road to Hell Is Paved with Good Intentions. Insurance agent Sean is called to visit Tak and Ling's home to follow up on a life insurance policy. When he goes into the bathroom, he is shocked to see their son's corpse hanging above him. When he sees Tak's cold, emotion-less response to the child's death, Sean - a righteous and kind-hearted man dedicated to his job - begins to suspect Tak and Ling may have murdered his son for the insurance money. When the police conclude that there was no foul play at work and the insurance claim is approved, Sean decides to lead his own investigation instead. However, as Sean becomes obsessed over Tak's guilt, his kind nature is used against him by the real perpetrator. Sean begins to receive one disturbing threat after another at home, and the people around him are put in danger.
An eager and honest insurance broker is drawn into difficulties in his work: a son has died, apparently by suicide, but he's not so sure that's the case. The father is very, very adamant about receiving the insurance payout on the child's life insurance policy, and our insurance broker just doesn't think it's proper, until he knows more about what happened. In the meantime, the mother of the child is disabled in that she's partially blind and getting blinder by the minute; might she be at risk next? And is the father exactly as he seems in this complicated moment?
I loved that this story-line turns itself upside down in so many ways, while still maintaining a lot of uncertainty about what's really going on. It took the comments of my husband, though, to bring home to me the real point, which I won't reveal here, except to say that there are many ways that can lead to moral destruction. Recommended!
