Relentless by Simon Kernick

Star rating:* (only because we couldn't give it any less) Not recommended

Plot: Jack Kalley receives a telephone call from a friend whom he has not heard from in some time - the friend is dying and manages to gasp out the 1st line of Jack's address. Someone wants to kill Jack...but who and why?

Review: A load of far-fetched rubbish with gratuitous violence thrown in for good measure!!! Very formulaic and americanised. You don't care about the characters, what happens to them or why. Book peters out at the end rather than tying up all the loose ends but doesn't leave the reader wanting more.
