Missing parts restored.

I bought the download of "Sharpe's Trafalgar" and the death of the lord's secretary was present in all its explicit glory. Apparently someone fixed the problem mentioned in other reviews. The audio was also very clear. I did not have a problem with the narrator's accent but then I watch a lot of PBS and so I am used to British accents.

Part 2 is incomplete (otherwise 5 stars)

I loved this book. Patrick Tull (who narrates many of the famous Patrick O'Brian Aubrey-Maturin series).

WARNING - As others have stated this version (on Audible) of the audiobook is lacking a considerable amount of the book. I went through the book 3 times trying to figure out if I missed the part where an important plot member is killed. Alas it's simply missing. Thanks to the other readers who compared this version to Local Library copies and noticed the error.

This needs to be fixed as the book shouldn't be sold as "Unabridged" with missing content.
