This book captured my attention because I lived in McHenry County, IL for many years. The book is about an adult son's quest to find truth and justice for his father's murder.

Very informative about the matter of the book. A bit too long for me. But a true accounting of the legal system with the mob.

My name is Paul Scharff. I am the co-author of Murder In McHenry. Murder in McHenry is my true story. On June 2, 1981 my father Ronald Scharff, was gunned down with his employee Patricia Freeman at our bar, the PM Pub. The PM Pub was located in a sleepy little town called Lakemoor Illinois.
