    Description

    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.

    love this book

    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

    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".

    True Crime Goodness

    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!

    Interesting story, great narration

    The book was well researched and written. It's detailed similar to The Stranger Beside Me, but there is less of a story (not everyone can be a monster like Ted). So it isn't as compelling, but still a good listen. I would rate Anne's books as:

    1. Green River, Running Red
    2. The Stranger Beside Me
    3. Too Late to Say Goodbye
    4. Small Sacrifices
    5...
    10. The many compilations she's written

    I like this narrator, especially for Anne's books. I saw a complaint on her once, but my friend who listens to Audible said she thought it was Anne Rule narrating and commented on how good she was.

    A welcome addition for Ann Rule Fans

    Any additional comments?

    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.

    OMG

    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.

    ANOTHER GOOD ANN RULE BOOK!

    Where does Too Late to Say Goodbye rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    4TH OUT OF 14. BUT I LOVED THE BOOK.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Too Late to Say Goodbye?

    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.

    Have you listened to any of Barbara Caruso’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I DON'T THINK SO. AT FIRST I DID NOT LIKE HER VOICE BUT IN THE END I ENJOYED THE READING VERY VERY MUCH.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    TRUE CRIME MURDER WITH FAMILY BACKGROUND (THE BEST KIND OF STORY)

    Any additional comments?

    I WISH THERE WERE MORE ANN RULE UNABRIDGED BOOKS AVAILABLE PARTICULARLY

    HumDrum

    Everything about this book was disappointing. It was repetitive, drawn out; full of fillers. Where's the beef? Few books get a bottom ranking from me because I can usually find some value in each one. I'm hard pressed on this one though. I've read many of Ann Rule's books. This one read and sounded like a cookie cutter production. Overall, it was uninteresting and boring.

    Spannend erzählt, Interessante Geschichte

    Die Geschichte ist wirklich haarsträubend, aber sehr schön und wirklich leicht verständlich erklärt, zusammenhänge werden schön aufgezeigt. Erzählerin hat eine sehr gute erzähl stimme. Mann fiebert teilweise richtig mit! Von den True Crime Hörbüchern, eindeutig einer der besseren! Sehr empfehlenswert
