I am asking other customers who listened to this book the same question I asked Customer Support. Did you notice the missing content at around 3 hours 40 minutes, 40 seconds? At this point the characters are in a deposition ten days before the trial, then the story abruptly jumps to the trial with no transition or explanation.
Specifically, the audio matches the Kindle version from page 127 where the chapter ends with (audio 03:40:43): "I return the smile. 'Then we'll just have to talk to him on the stand.'”
The audion version immediately jumps in time to the trial, with, "Wallace finishes just before lunch, and Laurie, Kevin, and I have two hours to decide whether I should give my opening statement now or wait until after the prosecution's case is finished and it's time to present ours."
Unlike the audio book, the Kindle print version takes a couple of more pages to explain the transition from deposition to trial: "TEN DAYS FLY BY AS IF THEY ARE TEN MINUTES, AND THE next thing I know the bailiff is intoning, 'In the matter of the people versus William Miller, the Honorable Justice Walter Henderson presiding …'” These pages are in the Kindle version but not in the audio book.
I pointed out to Customer support on Dec 10, 2012 that the story seemed to skip in chapter 4. Steven Lloyd in Customer Support finally got back to me on January 22 (yes, over 6 weeks later!) and informed me that the audio file was complete. He even said the publisher verified that it was complete. Since it still made no sense, I purchased the Kindle version and compared for myself, finding the above discrepancy.
On January 22, 2013 I again emailed Steven Lloyd and also to Customer Support with the specifics I found, including times and page numbers. I have heard nothing further from Audible on this matter, so I am asking other listeners to point this out to Audible Customer Support. They do not seem to hear me.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I couldn't get over the missing content. The file is missing content in at least one place for certain, and perhaps more.
