Complaint with Kobo Books store

I downloaded a book from their store, "The Tin Men" by Michael Frayn some time ago. At that time it had the normal colourful book cover.

A couple of days ago I had to reinstall Kobo Desktop at Kobo's suggestion to try to fix a problem (it didn't fix the problem !).

When I resynched I found the book cover for that book was plain black now ?

Kobo are telling me the cover is black because that book now"...does not have a cover..." due to "...a publisher's decision..." ?

All the other Michael Frayn books on their website have normal book covers.

All other major online stores show a proper book cover, why not Kobo UK.

This sounds like a Kobo fob off to me.

Can you guys out there check Kobo's store in USA, Canada, Australia etc and see what cover they show for this book please ?

Thanks in advance...
