When Korede’s dinner is interrupted one night by a distress call from her sister, Ayoola, she knows what’s expected of her: bleach, rubber gloves, nerves of steel and a strong stomach. This’ll be the third boyfriend Ayoola’s dispatched in “self-defence” and the third mess that her lethal little sibling has left Korede to clear away. She should probably go to the police for the good of the menfolk of Nigeria, but she loves her sister and, as they say, family always comes first. Until, that is, Ayoola starts dating a doctor at the hospital where Korede works as a nurse. Korede’s long been in love with him, and isn’t prepared to see him wind up with a knife in his back: but to save one would mean sacrificing the other…
LOHF crew members Emily and Laurie both highly recommend this entertaining debut novel to everyone but especially to those who enjoy reading about serial killers!
Emily’s Teaser Review
My Sister the Serial Killer is a wildly entertaining read, and I’m so glad I picked this up for the Ladies of Horror Fiction Readathon. Oyinkan Braithwaite is one to watch! This story is amusing, but still with a lot of depth, and I highly recommend picking it up.
