Incomplete Recording

As of 06/03/09 the recording is 15 minutes long. I believe it should be considerably longer.

Approximately 9 minutes into the recording the narrator (not Holmes or Watson) is walking toward an archaeological site in the company of a professor. In the NEXT SENTENCE, the narrator is looking at himself in a mirror. He has blood on his face, a growth of beard, and is considering the need to solve the professor's murder.
Holmes' first appearance in this story is a past-tense reference to actions and deductions which are not a part of the recording. The story then sweeps on to its ending.

I have notified that the recording appears to be incomplete and Aufible is investigating.
