Waterstones Says

Sharp, menacing and darkly funny, this debut novel from Nigerian author Oyinkan Braithwaite is not just an inventive take on the serial-murder thriller but also a tender examination of sibling relationships in an oppressively patriarchal society. A wickedly original story that turns the tables on the woman-as-victim trope, My Sister, the Serial Killer is an addictive - and hugely satisfying - read. 'Pulpy, peppery and sinister,’ as the New York Times writes, ‘this scorpion-tailed little thriller leaves a response, and a sting, you will remember.'

As smart and murderous as Killing Eve, My Sister, the Serial Killer is a blackly comic novel about how blood is thicker - and more difficult to get out of the carpet - than water...

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 the doctor 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...

“Don’t forget to get the marigolds....”

I love the packaging of this book sent to me by the publisher. It had a pair of bright green marigolds attached to it. After reading the book, I can understand why you need a pair....

Clever, funny, sassy; the story... More

“Brilliant”

Great read. Really liked the first impression and can't wait to read the rest. It is right up my street and can't wait to sit down and read the rest.

“Dark and Brilliant”

I enjoyed this so much: absolutely compulsive reading that verges on the hysterical when it comes to our narrators' series of unsettling events.
Mostly it's a tale of sisterhood in dark circumstances but... More
