Publisher's Summary

Set in early 1900s London, this metaphysical thriller follows undercover officer Gabriel Syme and his secret involvement with Scotland Yard's task force that attempts to take down underground anarchists. In doing so, Syme encounters Lucian Gregory, a passionate anarchist who eventually takes him to the area's secret meeting place. From there Syme influences his peers and eventually is voted to the central council. While Syme attempts to destroy the council of anarchists from the inside, he only uncovers more secrets, each more mysterious than the last.
Using many Christian allegories and themes of suffering, this classic G. K. Chesterton novel leaves listeners on the edges of their seats until the final secrets are uncovered.

Ripped off: This is not the complete book

It is missing the entire last chapter. I had to get another copy from a different source to get the ending which I have not read yet so I cannot yet fully review the story. I am absolutely frustrated that audible would allow this book to be sold as an unabridged recording when it is missing the entire last chapter. I would like a refund.

It is also definitely not an issue with the download because the second to last chapter ends and then the music comes on and says that this had been the man who was Thursday and the credits "roll" very frustrating.
