America's 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 - 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.

I was turned on to Ann Rule's books through the 2KnitLitChicks podcast. I am so glad that I found this! I love true crime drama and this just satisfied my quest for it. Although I may have been familiar to this story through a 48 Hours Mystery episode, I still found it chilling. The narration was perfect, with the right tones at the right times. I'll definitely read more of Ms. Rule's books!
Ann Rule is one of my favorite writers and she does not disappoint with this book. She is such an excellent story teller, and really covers all the details of the story. Wonderful book
AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
4TH OUT OF 14. BUT I LOVED THE BOOK.
I HAVE A HARD TIME PICKING OUT A MEMORABLE MOMENT IN MOST BOOKS. I COULD FORCE THE QUESTION BUT IT WOULD NOT BE HONEST. I LIKED THE WHOLE BOOK AND NO MOMENT STANDS OUT AS MORE MEMORABLE THAN ANY OTHER PART.
I DON'T THINK SO. AT FIRST I DID NOT LIKE HER VOICE BUT IN THE END I ENJOYED THE READING VERY VERY MUCH.
TRUE CRIME MURDER WITH FAMILY BACKGROUND (THE BEST KIND OF STORY)
I WISH THERE WERE MORE ANN RULE UNABRIDGED BOOKS AVAILABLE PARTICULARLY
I listen to audio books every day and love the intimate nature of the relationship between the narrator and the author
Well, this is the best true crime book I have ever heard. It was sensitive and very respectful. I t must have taken a great deal of time and emotional effort to write. I became totally engrossed in the lives of both families and shed a few tears. It had a very satisfactory ending and I admire the author for her ability to share such a personal account of such terrible murders. One can imagine it happening to anyone we know and love.
Very thorough and interesting look at this case. Overall it's worth a listen and interesting - especially the PART I. Toward the end, it started to lose my interest...I felt the story started to bounce around a bit and did lose my interest a few times. (I also listen while driving, broken up in 30 or hour long increments.) Although I got a bit turned around a few times keeping up with some of the characters, etc. I thought it was well done and well-written. If you enjoy murder mysteries or Dateline-eque stories - I would definitely recommend it.
I enjoyed this book by Ann Rule. She did a good job putting the pieces together and kept me interested, even though I pretty much knew what happened and why. The ending was disappointed, but that wasn't Ms. Rule's fault.
Barbara Caruso did an excellent job narrationg this book; she is normally a hit-or-miss narrator, but this one was well-narrated.
No, why would I?
Don't want to give anything away.
Yes, she's teriffic.
This is a good listen,but way too long for me. Think it could have been told in much less time.
What a shocker! This is one of the most bizarre and interesting stories Ann Rule has written about. I must say that I was shocked and enthralled by the twists and turns in this true crime book.
I am a fan of Ann Rule, though I have been disappointed by some of her work. This one did not disappoint! It is definitely a keeper!
I think it is a "must-buy" for true crime fans.
I don't want to ruin the story by giving away the details, so you'll have to check it out for yourself to see what happens. :)
Great narration. Highly recommended audiobook.
I kept looking at the title thinking I chose the wrong book because the readers gave it such good reviews. Interesting only because it was a true story but boring in the way that it was told.
"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.
