Featuring a bonus interview with author Jeffrey Archer
A disgraced British colonel bequeaths a mysterious letter to his only son. The moment Adam Scott opens the yellowing envelope, he sets into motion a deadly chain of events. Within days he's running for his life, pursued by the KGB, the CIA, and his own countrymen. Powerful men plot his destruction, and Adam is betrayed and abandoned even by those he holds most dear. When he finally realizes what he possesses, he's even more determined to protect it, for it's more than a matter of life and death - it's a matter of honor.

No, missing chapters. There are actually 2 missing chapters in this Audible version. Chapter 12 is replaced by a repeat of chapter 2, and chapter 24 was replaced by a portion of chapter 6.
There are missing chapters in the book and some of them repeat. It makes the book very hard to follow and disappointing that the recording company hasn't fixed it.

Something went very wrong with this recording. It kept jumping back to early chapters which were repeated, this spoiling the continuity of the story. Also vital parts of the story were lost altogether. My usual enjoyment of all Jeffrey Archer's books was on this occasion spoiled.
Please sort out and remedy this glitch. Also the narrator seemed to change in the middle!!!!
The story is interesting to listen to, but towards the end of the book chapters repeat from the beginning. Disappointing, but more of an issue for the company performing than a negative comment on the book itself.
Several places in the book were interrupted with audio from prior chapters, then fast forwarded to the "next" chapter. Lost some of the storyline. A good book but they need to spend some time listening to what they put out and we pay for.
