Midwest Geek (midwestgeek) | 124 comments There are several issues associated with entries for the 3 editions of this title:
1. Paperback edition: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1.... The publisher's blurb has been omitted, with "Book by Ball, Donna" in its place. You can take the blurb from the Kindle edition if you wish, but it would be worth noting the following: "The print version of HIGH IN TRIAL also features the bonus short story," All That Glitters. (The quote has been taken from the description on the author's web site: http://www.donnaball.net.) The paperback, which I own, combines 265 pages for this novel plus the 75-page short story, plus 10 pages devoted to titles, copyright, etc.

The short story is actually a prequel to the entire series, describing how "how Raine and Cisco first met and solved their first mystery together"; again from http://www.donnaball.net.

2. Kindle edition: The length is given as 159 pages. In fact, looking at the corresponding listing at
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BVSM1R0, you see that this edition has File Size: 719 KB, Print Length: 350 pages. The length given is the same as the paperback edition. I wasn't able to determine that the Kindle edition includes the short story as well, although the page length suggests that it does.

3. Audible edition: There are two entries on GR:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
This refers to ASIN B00SI0IVPA, which agrees with amazon.com.
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
This second listing includes no ASIN. As there are no ratings for it, it could be either deleted or merged with the first. No information about the short story, but, given its length of 5 hrs 36 min, I doubt that it is included there.

Sandra | 23153 comments 1. Paperback done; kindle also has the bonus short listed on the cover as does the paperback.
2. Fixed the page count for kindle. We can only take what is on amazon, so that worked fine.
3. Duplicate audible merged. Added details from amazon.

Thanks, Sandra. That was fast! However, when I now search for "High in Trial", GR returns only the listings including "All that Glitters", but not the audible edition.
There is in fact a listing for the short story:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1....
This includes both a kindle and an audible edition. I hadn't noticed previously.
The listing for the series https://www.goodreads.com/series/4166..., includes this but now omits the solo version of "High in Trial". I'm not sure what the best solution is, but maybe that's why the double title isn't assigned on amazon or Ball's web site.
