I’ll be in Skidmore this weekend. If you’re interested in talking about the case, the book “In Broad Daylight,” the town or northwest Missouri in general, let’s meet in front of the old post office on the main street at noon on Sunday.
In the next week we will be announcing the publishing date of the latest edition of “In Broad Daylight,” which will include “The Story Behind ‘In Broad Daylight.'”
In addition to including updates about the cold case through spring 2013, the book will be published in a larger paperback size (5.25″x8″).

This advertisement for the movie “In Broad Daylight” was placed in newspapers around the country. Friend Patti Hawkins found in on the inside cover of her book and sent it along for posting. In this age of “The Bully,” it’s hard to imagine a more menacing figure than this. I recall that on the set of the movie Denehey was so taken with the role that he made people nervous and they stayed out of his way. He died his hair black, wore black contact lenses, and carried a shotgun in the crook of his arm. Notice that the ad does not mention Marcia Gay Haren (Trena) or Chris Cooper (Stratton), both of whom would go on to some fame. You can find the movie on my blog.
“The Story Behind ‘In Broad Daylight'” is finally here. It’s now available on Amazon Kindle (also on Apple devices through a Kindle app). The true crime short is 64 pages long and has 9 pages of photos, some of which have not been published before. I tell how I came to write “In Broad Daylight” and the many obstacles I encountered in researching the story. The book discusses the moral dilemmas involved in taking a life outside the law, and also updates the story of the town and the main characters in the book.
I hope you all find it interesting.
