Publisher Description

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, quote, 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...

Loved it!

I love how it gave an insight into Nigerian culture threw in the local language. It was funny and crazy and really great read. I am so glad I bought it. I read it in two days and it’s well worth it.

Read in a day

Very readable, I don’t read much - only when on holiday really - and I managed this within a day. I found it well written and wasn’t put off by the occasional line here or there in the authors native slang tongue, just added to the character of the book. I’d recommend to anyone fancying an easy read.
