If you are a fan of Faulkner, Steinbeck, Williams this is a most logical and welcome progression.
Buck Schirner, no.
The first half dozen books fleshed out a complex yet harshly moral, man's man character in Cork O'Connor. "Progressively" - the second-worst word in the English language- the author transforms a Northwoods hero figure into a sniveling, DFL Nancy-boy.
At least there are still Joe Pickett and Walt Longmire to carry forward the torch of masculine, responsible fiction.
This is the weakest of the Cork O'Conner series and the new narrator does not help.
Longmire series by Craig Johnson
I've listened to David Chandler through both the C.J. Box and William Kent Krueger novels. Hearing this Buck guy tell the story, for me, is jarring and off-putting. I am certain Buck is a nice guy but he does not serve Joe Pickett or Cork O'Connorwell.
Yes, look for another heartland/outdoors thriller author.
