" . . . blood is thicker - and more difficult to get out of the carpet - than water . . ."
When Korede's dinner is interrupted one night by a distress call from her sister, Ayoola, she knows what's expected of her: bleach, rubber gloves, nerves of steel and a strong stomach.
This'll be the third boyfriend Ayoola's dispatched in, quote, self-defence and the third mess that her lethal little sibling has left Korede to clear away. She should probably go to the police for the good of the menfolk of Nigeria, but she loves her sister and, as they say, family always comes first.
Until, that is, Ayoola starts dating the fit doctor where Korede works as a nurse. Korede's long been in love with him, and isn't prepared to see him wind up with a knife in his back: but to save one would mean sacrificing the other.

"This mad but exciting and thoroughly enjoyable read is addictive and has characters you can't help but endear to, both sisters have unusual qualities and the story was a pleasure to read. A completely original and unique premise that offers the reader a touch of humour to an otherwise dark and twisted tale, you can't help smiling at many of the quirky chapters and is guaranteed to have you turning the pages quicker than you can read them." - Google Review.
" . . . so let’s take a look at this provocative, unique, mind bending and hilarious crime story . . ." - Goodreads Review.
