Mark Greaney never disappoints – he might be the best US action thriller writer right now – but Relentless is particularly superb, the ideal meeting of espionage mystery with balls-to-the-floor gunplay. It begins with Court ‘Gray Man’ Gentry trying to bounce back from a life-threatening injury, and trying to save the life of former SVR agent and love interest Zoya Zakharova in Germany, with various bad actors on their case; they are assisted, as previously, by Zack Hightower. The intrigue comes from the machinations of various powers, treachery, twists and turns, before the action bursts into glorious scarlet-tinged life. Series fans will particularly love the shock ending.

Meanwhile, CIA agent Zoya Zakharova is in Berlin. Her mission: to infiltrate a private intelligence firm with some alarming connections. The closer she gets to answers, the less likely she is to get out alive.
Court and Zoya are just two pieces on this international chessboard, and they're about to discover one undeniable truth: sometimes capturing a king requires sacrificing some pawns.
