A.L. McKittridge is an excellent detective. His skills are critical when it comes to his latest case - solving the disappearance of a five-year-old girl, with hopes of getting her back alive. It is first thought that the child, Emma Whitman, disappeared from daycare, so that is where A.L. begins his investigation. It doesn't take A.L. and his partner Rena Morgan very long to discover that not everyone they are interviewing is trustworthy. Now the pair must dig really deep to discover who is lying and why.

I really enjoyed this second book in the A. L. McKittridge series because it had a lot of layers. I didn't experience the frustration that I did in the first book in this series. For one thing, the Whitmans, Emma's parents, were hiding something. I loved the intrigue that forced A.L. to dig deeper. Also, the foundation for the characters was built in the first book, Ten Days Gone, and by reading that one previously, I had a lot of appreciation for A.L., his daughter, and his partner. I loved seeing these detectives as people behind their investigations.

I also enjoyed seeing A.L. find something in his life beyond his job and his teenage daughter. Those snippets of his life were enjoyable to read. Another aspect of this book that I enjoyed was seeing how and why some people lie, and how lying can have long-range and tragic results. The last thing that I will mention (while avoiding spoilers) is the reason behind the kidnapping in the first place. That part tugged on my heartstrings.

No One Saw is an excellent police procedural. This book and series holds a lot of promise, leaving me to look forward to reading whatever A.L. and Rena have as their next case.

Many thanks to MIRA and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
