Publisher's Summary

Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe series has consistently ridden the top of international best-seller lists since the first book appeared 18 years ago. Featured on American television's Masterpiece Theatre, the charming, valiant Richard Sharpe has amassed a huge fan club all his own. A guttersnipe who has risen through the ranks of the British army, Ensign Sharpe is sailing home to England from his latest campaign against Napoleon. Anticipating an uneventful voyage, the dashing young maverick discovers the intriguing and very married Lady Grace Hale on board the Calliope. But just as he wins his way into her heart, the ship is fired upon and, suddenly, he finds himself in the thick of one of history's most spectacular incidents: the Battle of Trafalgar.
Patrick Tull's vibrant narration bedazzles listeners with this breathtaking retelling of one of Europe's most ferocious sea battles.

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.
