Oyinkan Braithwaite’s 2018 novel My Sister, the Serial Killer is the story of two sisters, Korede and Ayoola, who live in Lagos, Nigeria. Korede is a hard working nurse, who cares deeply about her patients and her family, in particular her sister, who she feels protective of after a difficult childhood. It could be a sweet family novel, except for the small fact that Ayoola can’t stop killing her boyfriends. And dutiful Korede is always there to help her clean up the mess. Life, however, becomes much more complicated when Ayoola begins dating a doctor at Korede’s hospital, someone Korede has deep romantic feelings for. And so begins the story of My Sister, the Serial Killer
