Amazon sells what the publisher/author makes available to them. As Loz says, this is often region based as different publishers may have the rights to sell in different regions. Different publishers may have the rights on different books in a series as well. Your best bet is to contact the publisher/author and ask them to make the book available for Amazon to sell.

a lot of times publication in other countries is somewhat delayed (same hold true for movies and TV shows)

The author may have contracted with two different publishers for the books, or the publisher may have only negotiated the rights on one book in your country till they see how the book sells. There are other possible explanations too.

I agree it's frustrating. One thing to be aware of is, if you travel to another country you can change your address in Your Account/Manage Your Kindle/Country Settings to the address you visit, and while travelling you can buy any books available in the country you're visiting even if they're not available in your home country. And once purchased, you can continue to access them in your account even after returning home.

I have been wanting "The Road Out of Hell" for close to a year and it's not available now for content or formatting issues. It is available at Barnes & Noble. The Road Out of Hell

As the page you referenced says - "We are working with the publisher to fix the issue. As always, we value customer feedback. " I suggest you contact the publisher as Amazon can't modify any file.

I appreciate it when Amazon pulls ebooks that are poorly formatted or have other serious publishing errors.

B&N is no longer offering the Nook edition of "The Road Out of Hell". It just took them longer to pull it than it took Amazon.
