Publisher's summary

A young bride drowns in her bathtub. Her husband of four months is accused of murder. What happened in their tiny suburban bathroom - and why - was never resolved.

Based on exclusive new information, Submerged, a compelling true crime drama, exposes hidden angles of a case that captivated and divided an ordinary American community, tore apart two families, and tested the criminal justice system.

Compelled by conscience and curiosity, former Cincinnati Enquirer reporter Janice (Morse) Hisle - who covered the saga of Ryan and Sarah Widmer from the start - returns 10 years later to dig deep to tell the untold story: dozens of interviews, 6,000 pages of trial transcripts, and previously unrevealed records such as:

  • Ryan’s first written statement about Sarah’s death
  • Attorneys’ notes and trial-preparation documents
  • Ryan’s personal journal, notes, and correspondence
  • More than a thousand pages of police notes and reports

Submerged will draw you into the depths of a stranger-than-fiction story that you will ponder long after listening to the final word.
