Too Late to Say Goodbye – Ann Rule
Jenn Corbin appeared to have it all: two 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 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 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.

Play Dead – David Rosenfelt
Andy Carpenter’s affection for golden retrievers is unrivaled. After he astonishes a New Jersey courtroom by successfully appealing a golden’s death sentence, Andy discovers this gentle dog is a key witness to a murder that took place five years before. Andy pushes the boundaries of the law even further as he struggles to free an innocent man by convincing an incredulous judge to take canine testimony seriously.

It will take all the tricks Andy’s fertile mind can conceive to get to the bottom of a remarkable chain of impersonations and murder, as well as save a dog’s life – and his own – in the process.
