In addition to updates on characters from the book (including who is still alive and who has died), the book answers many questions about the killing itself, such as who was involved, and what has become of them. MacLean describes the breakthrough events when key characters agreed to speak with him, and he realized he would finally get the story. The author also discusses the nature of the moral consequences of the killing for the town and those involved in the crime.

You have to hear it to believe it
I really enjoyed listening to this book, and found it difficult to break away from it. The remarkable thing about this story is that an entire town could loathe a man so much that some men could shoot and kill him in broad daylight in front of many people, and not a single person would say who did it. In this book the author does a great job of helping us understand how the townspeople felt, and why they felt so powerless to stop Mr. McElroy.
I would strongly recommend this book to people who enjoy reading true crime (a genre I love).
The narrator did a great job of telling the story, without getting in the way of it. It was enjoyable to listen to.

What made the experience of listening to In Broad Daylight the most enjoyable?
I enjoyed the story, I read a short story on the incident but this story was detailed and i was able to get a better view on how everything worked up to the day it the crime happened and what happened to the town after.
What about Dave Clark’s performance did you like?
I like the way it was written, I didn't find any slow area's that dragged. The book was balanced
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
This book was better listening to it in parts.
