Book of the Week: ‘My Sister the Serial Killer’ by Oyinkan Braithwaite

My Sister the Serial Killer

About the book: The novel is a mix of thriller and comedy, exploring a rather unconventional relationship between two sisters: Korede and Ayoola.

The sisterly bond, the touch of dark humour and gripping plot are what makes this story unique and intriguing.
