— America¹s foremost true-crime writer offers her most riveting real-life drama ever: — a heartbreaking story of treachery, jealousy and murder. —
— Jenn Corbin appeared to have it all: two dear little boys, a posh home in one of the upscale suburbs of Atlanta, expensive cars, a plush houseboat, and a husband&l... more »saquo;Dr. Bart Corbin, a successful dentist‹who was tall, handsome, and brilliant.
But gradually their seemingly idyllic life together began to crumble. Bart was distraught and Jenn seemed disenchanted. Then, just a few weeks before Christmas 2004, Jenn was found dead with a bullet in her head, an apparent suicide. But Gwinnett County detective Marcus Head was not totally convinced, nor was Jenn¹s family. Was this death related to another apparent suicide fourteen years earlier of a beautiful student who once dated Bart Corbin in dental school? Or was the answer to be found in a secret -even dangerous- relationship Jenn Corbin was having outside her marriage?
For Too Late to Say Goodbye, Ann Rule has interviewed virtually everyone related to the story to uncover the truth behind the headlines of these two sensational deaths. What emerges is an incredible tale of jealous rage that runs from the steamy to the macabre. The definitive unraveling of one of the strangest murder investigations of our time, Too Late to Say Goodbye is perhaps the finest achievement of a truly great writer¹s career.

This story will be on TV this weekend and try not to miss it. The book, by Ann Rule, was a "can't put it down, sit on the edge of your seats story. Ann Rule writes with such indepth detail and describes the people involved in perfect detail. I always look forward to reading an Ann Rule book.

Another great read from Ann Rule. She's the best at fleshing out the back stories of the victims and their families. It's filled with details, but never tedious. When you are done reading, you feel as if you know these people. Ann is a master in this genre.
I seem to try to figure out what is going on in the minds of others - perhaps I should have been a psychiatrist - but there's no way to understand Dr. Bart Corbin. This book is the true story of Bart Corbin's obsession and murder of two women in his life. He originally got away with the first murder, but he wasn't so lucky the second time around, thank goodness. One has to wonder what switches get crossed in the minds of others for them to justify taking the life of another. Nevertheless, the story is fairly well told, but seriously, I get tired of the murdered woman always being portrayed as being so beautiful and almost perfect. I'm not sure why authors feel they have to do this; perhaps it's their way of ensuring a little more sympathy toward them. Anyway, this is a pretty good book, written in the typical Ann Rule style.
