No One Saw
by Beverly Long

Goodreads:  Nobody saw a thing. Or so they say…

Baywood police department detective A.L. McKittridge is no stranger to tough cases, but when five-year-old Emma Whitman disappears from her day care, there isn’t a single shred of evidence to go on. Neither the grandmother who dropped her off, nor the teacher whose care she was supposed to be in, can account for the missing child. There are no witnesses. No trace of where she might have gone. There’s only one thing A.L. and his partner, Rena Morgan, are sure of—somebody is lying.

With the clock ticking, A.L. and Rena are under extreme pressure as they discover their instincts are correct: all is not as it seems. The Whitmans are a family with many secrets, and A.L. and Rena will have to race to untangle a growing web of lies if they’re going to find the thread that leads them to Emma…before it’s too late.


Kritters Thoughts:  This is book two in a series with two detectives, AL McKittridge and Rena Morgan.  As is the case with most mystery series, the mystery to be solved is self contained in each book, but there is definitely some character development from book to book with the characters that are consistent from book to book, so I recommend starting at book one, but you won't be too spoiled by reading out of order.

In this book, the detectives are back and called in because a five-year-old has gone missing from a daycare where her grandmother dropped her off in a hurry to start her day.  Both parents, grandmother and many others in the book have reasons to lie and may not be the most upstanding adults!  There are plenty to not trust in this book and there was one road that the detectives went down that I thought was obviously wrong and may have voiced my opinion to no one!!

As a former employee of a daycare (in my high school years), I read this book with an interesting view from the perspective of the employees.  I am also not a parent, so I couldn't completely get into that headspace, but I could sure understand the terror of losing a child.  

I enjoyed this second book and am hoping for many more to come!


Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
