How far are we willing to go for the people we love? Will we set aside all morals to protect the ones we love even if it means enabling their murderous ways? Will we cry victim to being taken advantaged of and seek absolution?
Oyinkan writes of a tale of two sisters who if you ask me are a murderous duo. The story is narrated from the point of view of Korede who is Ayoola’s older sister, also deemed “the ugly sister”. Ayoola is a serial killer by description, she kills men for a living, understandably considering her relationship with her father.
Picture this, you’re Korede a nurse that is obsessed with cleaning. Your sister calls you hysterically talking about “he is dead”. What do you do? Report her or go clean up her mess? Oyinkan leaves it up to the readers to interpret whether Korede other than being an enabler, is an actual murderer herself.
A tale of moral dilemma and screwed up moral compasses, and how past traumas seep into the present. A tale of a bloody sisterhood and toxic love. A mystery of sorts and a confirmation of just how much we need trained and efficient forensic experts.
