Publisher's Summary

Would you kill the man your beloved grandmother wants dead?

Lies She Never Told Me is the story of Michael Gresham's heritage, beginning with his father's father. The book features mob wars in 1920s' Chicago; World War II invasions and POW camps; romance between powerful men and beautiful women; the most infamous mass murder in 1960s' Chicago; and the complete growing-up story of Michael Gresham himself, from young boy to young lawyer. The book recounts the first meeting between Michael and his famous investigator Marcel in Operation Desert Shield when both young men are soldiers on the track of Saddam Hussein.

Finally, when Michael's grandmother comes to him with a request that he track down and kill one man, can he refuse? He's been trained as a lawyer, he believes in the rule of law, and he believes that no man is above the law. But his grandmother won't let him go. She tells him a certain man must die for his crimes. 

Michael loves his grandmother with every cell in his body. Can he refuse her dying wish? Will he honor the vow he makes to this most important woman in his life? And so, the hunt begins. 

Who will Michael find first: the killer or himself?

A legal thriller from USA Today best-selling author John Ellsworth

Glad I did not listen to this one first!

I've listened to and enjoyed several legal thrillers in the Michael Gresham series. This is the first novel in the series. Had I listened to it first I would not have listened to other novels in this series.

Old story new hope

This story ranges from the late 1800s to present time. It touches every emotion you have from beginning to end.

Just wow

I have listened to the next 4 books in the series in the past. I don't know how I missed this one but it is terrific with an unexpected ending. now I will be listening to the rest in the series in order.

Take notes

This is great but keep your characters straight especially as the story starts ramping up to the end

Was okay but not riveting

The story dragged a bit and not much added by swapping character chapters in same voice. Wouldn’t recommend as a must read/hear but mildly entertaining.
