Jenn Corbin appeared to have it all: two little boys, a posh home in the suburbs of Atlanta, and a husband—Dr. Bart Corbin, a successful dentist— who was handsome and brilliant. Then, in December 2004, Jenn was found dead with a bullet in her head, apparently by suicide. Only later would detectives learn that another woman in Dr. Corbin’s past had been found years earlier with nearly the exact same wound to the head, also ruled a suicide.

 

In Too Late to Say Goodbye, Ann Rule—working in cooperation with victims’ families, police investigators, and sources from Georgia to Australia—unravels the now-sensational Corbin murders. What emerges is an incredible tale of jealous rage; of stunning evidence that runs from the steamy to the macabre; and of a fateful, mind-boggling coincidence that drove Dr. Corbin to kill again. The definitive unraveling of one of the strangest murder investigations of our time, this is a chilling portrait of two beautiful, successful women and the villain who made their murders look like suicides.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maribeth | 2/13/2014

    " So very well-written. Seems like fiction w/ all the character development & suspense of a mystery novel, but sadly it's true. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 2/3/2014

    " Ann Rule is definitely my favorite true crime writer, but this isn't one of her best....just rather dull, but still well written. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenn | 2/2/2014

    " This one was recommended to me by a coworker who love true crime. It was okay, but I just couldn't get into it. I returned it to the library after reading about half of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ericka Scott | 1/26/2014

    " Ann Rule's books are my secret sin (like reading confessions magazines). I'm always amazed and sickened at the depravity of human nature and how far some people will go to destroy the lives of the people they "love" "

    " The book is based on two murders: one that sadly would have never been solved without the other. I really liked that the author doesn't make you feel a certain way about the case she is presenting. She presents the facts and then lets you form your own opinion. "

    " I read 3/4 of the book then skipped to the end. Very sad story but it was too verbose and the author repeated herself quite a bit. Plus there was way too much detail and by the time it wound back to the investigation of the murder, I had lost interest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kara | 4/17/2011

    " i think the last "true crime" book i read was in 6th grade- which i got some demerits for. I swore them off but playaway selection isn't that great.

    Best part about this whole book- Tabitha, the silent witness. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terry | 7/31/2010

    " This is a cheap read when the books you want are not in the library and you're going on a cross-country business trip. Not nearly up to par as Vincent Bugliosi's books. Ann Rule seems to be the Harliquin novelist of true crime literature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyle | 6/4/2010

    " First time to read a true murder mystery. Book was well documented, highly insightful. As good as any who done it, but this was real. "
