2 Chapters are missing parts

Story wise this is one of my favourite In Death books, Unfortunately 2 chapters seem to missing parts as the story jumps on to the next chapter, Have contacted audible and they said that the chapter lengths are correct. This is very is very disappointing for me as i have been a long time fan.

Several parts are missing

As others have remarked, several whole chunks of a few chapters are missing, despite me re-downloading it, and trying different devices. I have had it on Pre-order for months as this is my favourite series. I tried your Chat help, but all she could offer was a credit. I don't want a credit, I want to read the book! Please get this fixed. I have just checked and the USA version has an hour more than the UK version. I presume that hour covers the bits missing from our UK edition. So I presume you can simply supply us with the USA version?

Aside from the missing chapters the book was great

The missing chapters in this book are such a shame. I ended up getting the ebook so I could read the missing parts of the two chapters. I contacted Audible and they put in a support ticket so I'm hoping that I can get a copy of the book again when it is complete. I loved the book and how everyone came together to surround Eve and Roarke. I always adore these books and this was very fast paced. Fingers crossed they get the chapter thing sorted as it did spoil it for me quite a bit.

Current version of book corrupt.

Just wanted to let potential fellow listeners know that there is an issue with the Audible UK version of the book. Chapters 9 and 13 are incomplete and stop after 2 mins 11 secs and 6 mins and 33 secs respectively. On the US site the book length is 11 hours and 59 mins but the UK running time is only 10 hours 59 mins. I suggest waiting until this issue is resolved before spending your credit/cash.

This is not abridged, its just faulty

As stated in other reviews, most of chapters 9 and 13 appear to be missing. Come on Audible and Hachette, sort out your quality control and get us the finished book!

Roark is supposed to have come from Dublin.

Always a good story from J D Robb but I wish I had read this one rather listening to the audio book. Completely ruined by the worst Orrish accent ever. Suggest tthe actor listen to someone like Colin Farrell if she is going to do Roark again.

Great except for the almost Missing Chapter

I am grateful that I read the ebook first or I would be confused. This audiobook download, (on 3 devices) chapter nine is two minutes and eleven seconds long. Some significant things happen in the missing chapter. I wasn't aware this was abridged. Edit -I emailed customer service and they replied that this is not the full version but it's the only version that comes up when searched for and is NOT marked as abridged. They gave me a link and I can't buy the full version as its unavailable in my region. This has only happened since MacMillian took over from Brilliance. Edit 2 09/15/20. Looks like it has been fixed. Ot is now 11 H 59 Minutes as is the "american region; version

Terrible recording

12 November 2020 - DOES ANYONE KNOW IF AUDIBLE HAVE BOTHERED TO ADD THE 2 CHAPTERS THAT WERE MISSING IN ORIGINAL RECORDING YET! I DOWNLOADED AND RETURNED TWICE BEFORE SO I AM NOT GOING TO PURCHASE AGAIN UNTIL I CAN BE SURE THE ENTIRE BOOK HAS BEEN RECORDED! I have contacted Audible twice to inform them that chapters 9 & 13 are missing large amounts of the text and suggested they need to re-record the entire work! Absolutely horrible audio of the book! Am very disappointed! 17/9/20 update. They tell me it was fixed but when I followed instructions and tried downloading again still not complete. Have exchanged for refund. Not worth the cash buy. I might use a credit and try again with it later. A huge disappointment, though. 19/9/20 updated. Purchased 2nd time and redownloaded fresh. NO CHANGES TO CONTENT. This has not improved, still 1 hr of content unrecorded/missing. I will have to claim refund a 2nd time and give up entirely on this one. I am really disappointed!

Possibly one of her best yet

Loved this. As usual the narration was superb. The story was great - loved the personal insights and the way it came together. J D Robb with Susan Erickson is an auto buy for me

fix the incomplete chapters

I'm not sure what's worse, the incomplete chapters or Audible.com's customer service.... no, it's the customer service that's the worst. At least the version on Kobo Audible is now complete while Audible keeps pretending it is a problem with our devices... ALL our devices. Not a happy customer.

One of the best for a while

Really enjoyed this latest book in the series. As mentioned by others there is a crucial chapter (9) cut short in the recording. I’ve reported it to customer service so hopefully they’ll sort it soon. I was so into the story at that point I actually purchased the accompanying kindle version so I could keep going.

Disappointing

Have not finished , but very disappointing to discover what looks like a whole chapter missing. It’s not as if the downloads are free. And I know it’s missing as have read the book on kindle Not a problem with anything else.

Missing parts

End of chapter 13 is not there and be going of chapter 14 seems to start pay way through. Also same for chapter 9 and 10 where Eve is chasing the unsubscribe and the car in the bag. Wondering what else I have missed.
