Book Review: No One Saw A Thing by Andrea Mara

“No one saw it happen.
Everyone is lying.
Someone is to blame.”

Set to be published on 11th May, No One Saw A Thing by Andrea Mara follows Sive, standing on a crowded tube platform in London. Her two little girls jump on the train ahead of her. But as she tries to join them, the doors slide shut and the train moves away.

By the time Sive gets to the next stop, she’s convinced herself that everything will be fine. But she soon starts to panic, because there aren’t two children waiting for her on the platform. There’s only one.


Thank you to NetGalley for a free advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Talk about twist on top of twist on top of twist! No One Saw A Thing is a suspenseful thriller with so many shocking turns, that you’ll definitely be kept on your toes with this fast-paced and addictive read.

Mara has quickly become an auto-buy author for me. She always creates a brilliant tense atmosphere and her thrillers are always some of my favourite reads! Yet again, I couldn’t put this one down.

Sometimes thrillers annoy me when they are based on characters who don’t communicate with each other properly with lie after lie being revealed. But it just worked so well here! Because there was so much going on, you can understand why the characters don’t have time to catch their breath, and every new revelation comes as a massive shock.

I also love how Mara frequently weaves the theme of motherhood into her stories. It definitely fills her stories with more anxiety, and the opening scene is like right out of a mother’s worst nightmare!

If you’re looking for an exciting nail-biting thriller with a strong mystery and plenty of suspects, give this one a read!
