Would you listen to One Day in New York again? Why?
Yes Its a good short story with plenty of action
What was one of the most memorable moments of One Day in New York?
In The church when Jake encounters the angel?
Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
Im normally a reader and not a listener but have started to listen to a few of my favourite books and really enjoy the readers interpretation of them so will continue use Audible.
Joanna Penn's books are always extremely well written and researched and her Arkane series is fast paced and exciting, - no time to catch your breath fast. I had not previously read One Day In New York so, when given the opportunity to receive a copy of the new audio version in exchange for an honest review, I jumped at the chance. Unfortunately, I found it almost impossible to listen to the narrator. His voice timbre suited the story very well but his irritating habit of down turning the tone at the end of, and sometimes in the middle of, every sentence was so disconcerting and morose that it invariably sent me into a semi stupor within minutes leaving me no clue as to what was happening.
I made several concerted attempts to listen to the end but was so distracted by the voice that, eventually, I bought the kindle edition in order to be able to follow the story.
so, do buy the book which is of Joanna's high standard but, unless you are an insomniac looking for a cure, avoid the audio version.
This was so fast paced! Loved that. Not the first in the series but it bother the story but possibly there's more to it later? I listened for free for my review and though not usually a military type story this was throughly enjoyed!

Would you consider the audio edition of One Day in New York to be better than the print version?
Always is, but I only listened!
What other book might you compare One Day in New York to and why?
This is a supernatural mystery thriller....and its a good one....
Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have, and I like Jeffrey's narration...he has a great masculine deep voice..and makes the story even more intense!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I was really not happy when the nun was almost violated....that is just so wrong!
Any additional comments?
** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
This was creepy from the start...a person being burnt on a cross is never a good sign! The story is quick and intense, and one you will not want to put down! Jake is an arkane agent and comes to NY to help investigate an ancient cross that may have fallen into the wrong hands...and gets more than what he bargains for....danger ensues and he finds himself having to make a decision that could possibly destroy the city but may help him get the revenge he has wanted for his family for a long time....Pretty good listen..and made me want to listen to the whole series! Great narration and I recommend!!
