I really don't care for Crisden's performances. Don't get me wrong, he has a nice speaking voice - but he doesn't have much range/variety, and that Fozzy bear voice needs to be dropped altogether.
The narrator of the first 2 books in the series (Cut & Run, Sticks & Stones) did a GREAT job creating Ty, Zane and the other characters. I agree with Jennfer & L. - this new narrator is pretty bad. He has three voices - regular, deep, and Fozzy bear from the Muppets. (Another listener made the Fozzy bear comment regarding a different book narrated by Crisden-I have to agree.) Also, there were a few times in the book where word emphasis in a sentence was totally off. I wonder if Crisden LISTENED to the first two audiobooks. It wouldn't have helped him with his voice limitations, but it would have given him a better feel for how the books flow.
It's John Sandford, Lucas Davenport, and Richard Ferrone. This combination has NEVER missed - IMO. I love this series.
Lucas Davenport - sexy, street smart, and has no qualms about getting a little dirty in the name of justice.
Richard Ferrone is an EXCELLENT narrator. The quality of his narration remains consistent, so I'd have to say this ranks up there with the rest.
