Staff Reviews


Try as she may, Korede cannot seem to keep her sister Ayoola from murdering her boyfriends. Ayoola just can't help it. With a twisted plot that will delight mystery readers and literary fiction fans alike, MY SISTER, THE SERIAL KILLER is one of my favorite books of the year.

— Suzanna

It is hard enough having a beautiful sister who bewitches men, but then she kills them and expects Korede to clean up after her. Ayoola wouldn't have the faintest idea how to get up all that blood or what to do with the bodies. Korede is tired of being the pragmatic, hard-working sister. And now Ayoola has her sights set on the one man Korede truly loves. Oh! The injustice siblings can engender is brutal. This is hilarious and beautifully written.

December 2018 Indie Next List


My Sister, the Serial Killer is one of the best books to come along in quite a while — fast, funny, and completely engrossing. Oyinkan Braithwaite offers up a tale of Nigerian sisters Ayoola, a beautiful and sociopathic serial killer who destroys boyfriends, aware that all they ever want her for is her appearance, and Korede, a nurse whose average looks leave her continually passed up in preference for Ayoola. Still, taciturn and devoted Korede works hard to cover up her charming sister’s crimes. What will happen when they both fall for the same guy? At once a page-turner and a perversely righteous tale about the emptiness of physical beauty and the superficiality of being charmed by it, My Sister, the Serial Killer is entertaining, provoking, and utterly fascinating!”

Winter 2019 Reading Group Indie Next List


“Who would have guessed that murder might actually be the least distressing part of Oyinkan Braithwaite’s My Sister, the Serial Killer? Packed full of sibling rivalry, workplace drama, and family secrets, this wicked little stiletto of a tale bubbles with malice, served up Lagos-style. The one problem? Braithwaite’s racing prose and vivid characters left me wanting a sequel.”
— David Enyeart, Next Chapter Booksellers, St. Paul, MN
