Too Late to Say Goodbye by Ann Rule

By early December, 2004, Jenn Corbin had already bought presents for her two young sons and begun decorating the familyToo Late Christmas tree.  To most people, the Corbins seemed to be a happy, normal family – Jenn’s husband Bart was a dentist, she was a preschool teacher, they had a beautifully decorated home in an Atlanta suburb, and they enjoyed outings on their houseboat in Lake Lanier.

Then, early in the morning, Jenn’s seven-year-old son arrived at the door of some neighbors, stunning them with his words, “My mom isn’t breathing. My daddy shot my mommy – I need you to call 911.”

Rule details the lives of Jenn and Bart Corbin, as well as the story of a woman whose death fourteen years earlier might have had connections with Jenn’s murder, and describes the two investigations.  One of the most interesting parts of the book is about Jenn’s amazing online relationship with a mysterious person.

Rule, formerly a police officer, has written more than two dozen true crime bestsellers.

If you, like me, enjoy reading true crime books, don’t miss this one!

Also – read The Stranger Beside Me, Ann Rule’s book about serial killer Ted Bundy, who was an acquaintance of Rule’s before she (or anyone else) suspected him of murder.
