My Sister, the Serial Killer was Braithwaite’s smash debut that won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Mystery/Thriller. The story follows a Nigerian woman named Korede who is bitter about her sister. She, Ayoola, is the favorite child and the better looking one, and Korede has always lived in her shadow. Ayoola also just had her third boyfriend in a row die. Luckily for her, Korede is good at cleaning things up and does a good job of protecting her sister from suspicion, not that she gets any credit for it. Now, Korede’s long-time crush has asked for her sister’s phone number and Korede has to deal with what she knows is going to come next and discover just how far she is willing to go to protect her sister.

She shows off a life of luxury that her followers can only dream of, but one follower is determined to be part of it and becomes determined to meet her in the flesh.
