On the way to her "vacation" spot, she is pushed off the road ending with the front of her car in the river. She calls 911 and gets Marcus who used to be an EMT but lost that job because of his drug addition problem. Still wanting to help people, he became a 911 operator.
Lucky for Rebecca, Marcus didn't always follow the rules. It was a busy night so there was only one police car available to search for Rebecca and her children. Marcus knew that wasn't enough and they didn't have much time, so he went to look for them himself.
I loved the characters in Submerged. Poor Marcus had gone through so much with loosing his wife and son in an accident. He tried to handle the loss by taking drugs which caused him to lose his job. Then we have Rebecca who has lived with an abusive husband for way too long. There was nothing good about this guy. He also had a gambling problem and cheated on her.
This was a well written, fast paced suspense that I highly recommend. I really like books that I can't figure out who dunnit before the end. In Submerged I was actually surprised to learn who was trying to kill Rebecca.
Marcus, a recovering drug addict is living life 6 years after the death of his wife and son. He blames himself every minute for the tragedy that took them because he considers his drug use to be the root cause of their deaths. He needs some kind of catalyst to bring him to the point where he can forgive himself and begin life anew.
The catalyst comes one night while he is working his job as a 911 dispatcher. A woman and her children have been in an accident, only it wasn't really an accident. As a result of the call Marcus jumps into action, which brings about the forgiveness he needed and the love of a woman with whom he will begin again.
This story has everything I love in a book, lots of action, suspense, great character development, defeat of the bad guys, and hope for the future. I found the book hard to put down.
To be honest, I must give just a couple of criticisms. First, the text needs better proof reading. There are grammatical errors, which shouldn't happen in this day of spell check and high paid editors. Second, I would have loved to see Marcus' jerk of a boss get his comeuppance. But don't let these criticisms keep you from a great story from a good writer.
