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 - 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 Jenn's family. Was this death related to another apparent suicide 14 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 writer's career.

Ann Rule does it again
If you could sum up Too Late to Say Goodbye in three words, what would they be?
Well, I can't, but I CAN sum it up in 125 words: I've read many of Ann Rule's books, and the "book-length" ones never fail to hold me in their grip. This true story took place in a Georgia county that I know fairly well, and Rule did a good job of describing it accurately. As always, the book is dense with description of characters and events, including in depth back stories. Rule must be adept at winning the confidence of the people who tell the stories she writes; the level of detail is often astonishing. I haven't enjoyed her "short-story" books nearly as much because the length is just not sufficient to "know" the people involved as I feel I know them at the conclusion of her major works. Ann Rule works hard, and it shows!
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Yes, I definitely learned a little more about how to commit the perfect murder - what pitfalls to avoid, and such ; )
What three words best describe Barbara Caruso’s voice?
Not. My. Favorite.
Any additional comments?
As an aspiring writer myself - of fictional crime - I've learned a lot from Ann Rule about pacing, story development and getting deep into the lives and psyches of the players. Mine are all made up, of course, but I think reading Ann Rule has helped me make them more "real".

Too Late To Say Goodbye
I have only just discovered Ann Rule,I am so glad i did,she is an amazing author of true crime,after listening to Dead By Sunset i was hooked this story too is just as fascinating,its just unreal how somebody could do that to someone and try to get away with it ,it was very similar to the Dead By sunset case,It must be so interesting for Ann Rule to get so involved in these cases and make a big difference to their families a great listen if you love true crime.

It just goes on and on and on. Not Anne R’s best work. Somewhere around chapter 30 you just want to yell, “get on with it!” Exhausting. Starts well and just sort of fizzles after chapter 20-something.
