5.0 out of 5 stars Ann Rule is a master of true crime writing!, June 21, 2007
This review is from: Too Late to Say Goodbye: A True Story of Murder and Betrayal (Hardcover)
I read Ann Rule's latest offering within a few days, it is that riveting, and heartbreaking. Ann Rule, who has given us past works of true crime, does an amazing job of piecing together the story of two women who were killed in cold blood for being involved with a man who could not bear losing them. What is even more amazing is that the two women died fourteen years apart - the first, dental student Dolly Hearn was found shot to death and her death was ruled as a suicide, and the second, Jennifer Corbin, young mother of two sons, also found shot dead, and initially believed as a suicide. Only with the sleuthing and investigative skills of the officer presiding over the investigation does the sinister truth surface - that both women were the victims of a ruthless killer, Bart Corbin. Ann Rule manages to convey the victims sympathetically, and their stories are told with great empathy. We feel for these two women who died senseless deaths just because the man in their lives could not bear the thought of losing them. It is also a portrait of a marriage gone bad, of emotional and psychological abuse that drives a young mother to pursue an online affair, only to find out towards the end of her life that even that one refuge from her failing marriage is a lie. This true crime account reads like a work of fiction, but unfortunately, is based on actual events, and it will shock and sadden. Nevertheless, it is a story that deserves to be read, for the world needs to 'hear' the victims' stories, and find relief in justice being served.
