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.

    " This was a true story of a double murder and both deaths were originally deemed to be suicides, but justice was served in the end. This was a page turner and very interesting for me. This was my first Ann Rule book, but it will not be my last. "

    " GOT A LITTLE SLOW AT THE END AND DRAGGED OUT, BUT THE FIRST 3/4 WAS VERY INTERESTING "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margie | 4/19/2011

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kitty | 4/15/2011

    " This book was one of the better books Ann Rule wrote. I read this one quickly, it was interesting as a "who dunnit". I liked how the investigation rolled on and the interesting facts of being inside a murder investigation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 2/4/2011

    " Very detailed as all of Ann Rule's books are. She writes with the victim in mind- and that is refreshing when reading true crime "

    " I have just started this book and so far it is incredible! I can't wait to get further into the story. This is the first true crime book I have ever read that uses real case photos in the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 12/22/2010

    " Both horrifying and moving, the book covers the questionable deaths of two women who shared one thing in common--crossing paths with the same man. "

    " I listened to this on audio on my drive to and from work and I really enjoyed. This is the first time I have tried anything in the true crime genre and I see more of it in my future. "

  • 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. "
