Good story marred by shortening

I am addicted to Ian Rankin and to Inspector Rebus in particular, and bought this one because I am running out of full-length versions on Audible. But this one is so severely abbreviated that it becomes difficult to follow and much of the enjoyment is lost. I don't suppose they will ever release a full-length version, but if they do I will buy it, despite having listened to this one.
It must be galling for Ian Rankin to have his stories butchered in this way.
