A short, darkly funny, hand grenade of a novel about a Nigerian woman whose younger sister has a very inconvenient habit of killing her boyfriends

“Femi makes three, you know. Three and they label you a serial killer.”

Korede is bitter. How could she not be? Her sister, Ayoola, is many things: the favorite child, the beautiful one, possibly sociopathic. And now Ayoola’s third boyfriend in a row is dead.

Korede’s practicality is the sisters’ saving grace. She knows the best solutions for cleaning blood, the trunk of her car is big enough for a body, and she keeps Ayoola from posting pictures of her dinner to Instagram when she should be mourning her “missing” boyfriend. Not that she gets any credit.

Korede has long been in love with a kind, handsome doctor at the hospital where she works. She dreams of the day when he will realize that she’s exactly what he needs. But when he asks Korede for Ayoola’s phone number, she must reckon with what her sister has become and how far she’s willing to go to protect her.

Sharp as nails and full of deadpan wit, Oyinkan Braithwaite’s deliciously deadly debut is as fun as it is frightening.

  1. THE AFRO READER

    The title of this book is what appeals to you at first. Why would a Nigerian woman want to be a serial killer? Are there even serial killers in Nigeria? Isn’t it a western thing? Isn’t she mental? These are some of the funny thoughts that came to mind as I held my copy with great joy! It’s kind of difficult to “review” this book because, honestly, it’s a book without any strong theme. It is not a book against the backdrop of any political happening. It’s basically a book about “nothing” and really, that’s what I love about it. If you are wondering if we have serial killers in Nigeria, then this book is for you.
