How does the end of 'Get Carter' differ from the end of the novel, 'Jack's Return Home', it's based on?

I saw 'Get Carter' last night, pretty good movie. A number of the descriptions note its (appropriate but not, IMO particularly surprising) ending.
Internet tells me it's based on a well regarded book by Ted Lewis, 'Jack's Return Home'. Some of the reviews, blog posts, essays, what-have-you also praise the book's ending and point out it was different from the movie's. None of them actually detail the difference.
So, how does 'Jack's Return Home' end?
