** The author was kind enough to provide me with a paperback copy of his book. This, however, has not affected my review**

I feel so much respect and praise towards this book. We really got to see the eyes of the story through the main character. The main character, Cameron Clark, is a sadistic, callous, and highly trained assassin hired by others to kill. The point of view especially appealed to me because we got most of the substance of the story through the villian's point of view. Stan Yocum's Unrelenting Nightmare is a new twist on mystery/thrillers that will leave you on the edge of your seat, wanting more.

As I stated in the above, we have our main character Cameron Clark who is somewhat infatuated with being an assassin. The background information in the book tells us that Clark grew up in a dysfunctional family, and he had bad relations with his father. People come to him asking him for his services to kill people. In the beginning of the story, we see him taking down two victims. The first being a secret mission from someone in the Pentagon and a father's request to kill a famous athlete, getting revenge for his daughter. Stan Yocum has demonstrated one of the most elaborate character developments I've seen in a book so far. In the beginning we have Clark who is a perfectionist and will finish the job with no strings attached. Then we get to the end of the book where we begin to see Clark slip up and become messy in his actions.

The story even starts out as fast-paced! Beware this is somewhat of a violent book. There are some aspects of blood and death. I realized that as I got further into the book, the plot began to thicken and revel in more of its crazy and thrilling aspects. I was on edge the entire time through reading this book. And honestly I've been in quite the reading slump these past several days, but of course, this book was all I needed to wake up and get back on task. The ending is also something I'd like to dwell on... Put your helmets on people because the ending of this book will literally blow you up!! ( And if you've read this book, you know exactly what I mean).

Honestly a marvelous read that will get you our of any reading slump!
