I'm loving My Sister, the Serial Killer... Lethally elegant -- Luke Jennings, author of Killing Eve: Codename Villanelle
Pulpy, peppery and sinister... This scorpion-tailed little thriller leaves a response, and a sting, you will remember. * New York Times *
Delightfully naughty... The wittiest and most fun murder party you've ever been invited to. * Samantha Irby, Marie Claire *
Disturbing, sly and delicious * Ayobami Adebayo, author of 'Stay with Me' *
This riveting, brutally hilarious, ultra-dark novel is an explosive debut by Oyinkan Braithwaite... A delicious tale. * Nylon *
In its darkly comic depiction of two women teaming up against the powerful, abusive men in their lives, My Sister the Serial Killer feels like an ideal book for the present moment. * Washington Post *
A bombshell of a book - sharp, explosive, hilarious * New York Times Book Review *
This book is amazing, and every woman should read it in public. While cackling. * Lit Hub, Book of the Year 2018 *
Hilarious, disturbing, and so much fun to read. * Elle, Books to watch in 2019 *

You can't help flying through the pages * Buzzfeed, Book of the Year 2018 *

Oyinkan Braithwaite is rewriting the slasher novel, and man, does it look good... A terrific and clever novel about sisterhood * Refinery29 *
A gem: small, hard, sharp, and polished to perfection * Edgar Cantero, New York Times-bestselling author of 'Meddling Kids' *
Sly, risky, and filled with surprises, Oyinkan Braithwaite holds nothing back in this wry and refreshingly inventive novel about violence, sister rivalries and simply staying alive. * Idra Novey, author of 'Ways to Disappear' *
Bursting with chutzpah and laced with deadpan wit, My Sister The Serial Killer breezes in, knocks you sideways and waves goodbye with a killer smile. And like all deadly entertainments, it whets the appetite for more * Liz Jensen, author of 'The Ninth Life of Louis Drax' *
Braithwaite's blazing debut is as sharp as a knife...bitingly funny and brilliantly executed, with not a single word out of place * Publishers Weekly, (starred review) *
Who is more dangerous? A femme fatale murderess or the quiet, plain woman who cleans up her messes? I never knew what was going to happen, but found myself pulling for both sisters, as I relished the creepiness and humor of this modern noir. * Helen Ellis, author of American Housewife *
Even your most extravagant speculations about what's really going on with these wildly contrasting yet oddly simpatico siblings will be trumped in this skillful, sardonic debut. * Kirkus Review *
This slim, scathingly black comedy delves into two sisters' tenuous dynamic - heightened since one of them is, erm, a serial killer. Such morbidity only sharpens the book's comic edge, which emerges via Braithwaite's deadpan prose. * Entertainment Weekly *
Braithwaite's blazing debut is as sharp as a knife...bitingly funny and brilliantly executed, with not a single word out of place. * Publishers Weekly, (starred review) *
In her buzzy debut, Braithwaite tests the bond of sisterhood in a dark yet funny examination of violence, loyalty and family. * Time *
Dark, scathing, insidious, and wickedly funny... At once uproarious, shocking, and packed with emotional poignancy. * Crimereads *
Braithwaite's writing pulses with the fast, slick heartbeat of a YA thriller, cut through by a dry noir wit. That aridity is startling, a trait we might expect from someone older, more jaded-a Cusk, an Offill. But Braithwaite finds in young womanhood a reason to be bitter. At the center of these women's lives is a knot of pain, and when it springs apart, it bloodies the world. * New Republic *
Deftly written... pointy and sleek * The i *
Inventive, darkly comic * Daily Mail *
A comically clever and exciting debut * The Skinny *
Utterly addictive and a pure joy to read * Stylist *
A short, sharp and sinister sister act, told with plenty of mordant humour * Irish Independent *
Fresh new voices in the crime fiction genre are very welcome, and there are none more fresh than Oyinkan Braitwaite. This visceral debut ... is a darkly funny romp that manages to combine the page-turning quality of the best thrillers with a serious look at familial and sibling conflict. It's also something of a riot ... enormously entertaining * Big Issue *
This is an assured debut and that dark humour will stay with you long after you've put down the book * Scotsman *
Braithwaite's deft first novel offers intriguing glimpses of middleclass Lagos life. * Mail on Sunday *
My Sister, the Serial Killer is the blackest of black comedies, narrated by the longsuffering Korede in brief, matter-of-fact flashes... Oyinkan Braithwaite, a fiendishly talented young Nigerian writer, tells her ghastly story with superb wit and assurance. * The Times *
Leaves you torn between laughing, crying, and immediately going out and resisting the patriarchy * Vogue *
Clever novel about two sisters, one of whom is a serial killer, the other the resentful, yearning enabler. The satirical bent works really well here... Interesting observations about social media, men and what they want, and women who see right through them. Well worth a read. -- Roxane Gay * Goodreads *
