My Sister, the Serial Killer

1 Mins read

Nigerian writer Oyinkan Braithwaite burst onto the crime fiction scene with this debut novel, a lively exploration of the ineffable ties between siblings, mixed with practical advice, such as “I bet you didn’t know that bleach masks the smell of blood.”

While Korede busily covers up her sister Ayoola’s murders, she must repress her feelings for the next man whom Ayoola has set her sights on. While these at times highly amusing antics occur within the cultural context for women in Nigerian society, the rivalries Korede faces are universal. No wonder this book was nominated for numerous prizes! Read our full review here.
