Victor Bradshaw is Dead by Ryan Davis is a thriller mystery. A serial killer named Serenity Slayer strikes the town of Oakville, Massachusetts. His targets are already decided: a lawyer, a police detective, and a bartender. They are all from different walks of life and the only thing they have in common is Victor Bradshaw. And Victor Bradshaw is dead. Steven Cross is a lawyer at a prestigious law firm with a routine life. But that all changes when he starts receiving parcels of severed body parts of the victims. These parcels are also followed by disturbing phone calls.

The murder mystery will introduce you to one of the scariest serial killers. The book is filled with intrigue, suspense, and highly explosive emotions which will keep readers guessing and enthralled until the very last page. The story is violent and gross in many areas but the narration is so skillful that you actually feel the serial killer is stalking you. Victor Bradshaw, the dead philanthropist, and his connection with the three slain people and the serial killer form the crux of the plot.

Steven Cross, the lawyer, is another important character. There are many other characters who help him in solving the crime. They all are described very well by the author. The subplots are woven well to make the ending very effective. Will Steven be able to fit the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle together and find the connection between the victims and Victor Bradshaw?
