I love true crime books but this has to be the most boring true crime book I have ever read in my life. It was very badly formatted for Kindle and it was just all facts and quotes really. There was no real story and to be honest the ending summed up the entire book in like 2 pages which could have just saved me a lot of time if I just read that.

For months, the young son of Bart and Jennifer Corbin had told anyone who would listen that he was afraid of the violence that went on behind the closed doors of his elegant Georgia home. Then on the morning of December 4, 2004, 7-year-old Dalton ran to a neighbor's house, sobbing. What was uncovered was almost unbelievable to the Corbins' neighbors: Jennifer Corbin was engaged in a secret cyber-sex lesbian affair and successful dentist Bart Corbin had a bizarre and frightening past.

It was a well written book that wasn't drawn out and boring for a change. It saddens me that this sort of thing happens but what he put his children through was utterly disgusting. I'm pissed he took the plea bargain I would have rather he be really dumb and go to trial where he would of got what he deserved. Alas if the verdict appeased the families I guess that's good enough for me. My heart goes to the families robbed of such beautiful women and to the poor children that had to be put through ...more

Very fast read - a story of a successful dentist who murders his wife, in the same way that he murdered his girlfriend while in dental school fourteen years previously. The old murder was classified as a suicide, and he thought he could get way with it a second time. After he killed his wife, which no one believed was a suicide, the original murder was brought into light, and he was convicted of both murders.
