Too Late to Say Goodbye

Too Late to Say Goodbye: A True Story of Murder and BetrayalToo Late to Say Goodbye: A True Story of Murder and Betrayal by Ann Rule
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

i listened to the audio book of this. I LOVED the book, but the reader sucked so bad it was very hard to get into the book. Advise. Read it, dont listen to it.

Anyway, Too Late to Say Goodbye is the story of the death of Jen Corbin, wife of Dr. Brad Corbin. One December morning in 2004, Jen's son ran out to the neighbors telling them that his dad had shot his mom and that his mom was dead. While he hadn't actually seen the shooting with his own eyes, he had witnessed his father's bad treatment of his mother on different occasions in the past. When the police began their investigation, Corbin wouldn't even talk to them, much less come to the aid of his children, making him a pretty likely suspect to the police immediately. Rule goes through not only the investigation into Jen's murder, but also brings up another death done in the same fashion -- it was a woman Corbin had known while in dental school years earlier whose sudden death had been ruled a suicide, like Jen's murder had been first considered. Putting together the pieces of the lives of the major players, Rule's book traces the long and often twisted career of Corbin as well as the lives of the women who may have met death at his hands
