Your Audible Summary Stinks

This is a fine short story, and I was looking forward to listening to it. During the ordering process here on Amazon, I made the mistake of scrolling down to read the story's description. Whoever wrote this description for Audible pretty much gives away the ending in the synopsis!

Ever heard of the concept, "Spoiler Alert?"

If anyone at Amazon/Audible actually reads this (or if you're a clever bot, maybe you'll process this), please do your customers a favor and rewrite the synopsis to eliminate this glaring bit of poor judgement!
