I enjoyed this. A different take on a mystery as we move to Lagos and meet the narrator, a nurse called Korede, who is helping her fashion designer sister, Ayoola, dispose of her boyfriend's body. Gradually, as is given away in the title, we see that this isn't the first time that Ayoola has been in this situation and we start to doubt her motivation for this murder. The background to the sister's lives is revealed slowly. The story is full of detail about a city that's completely alien to me, but peopled with a cast whose actions and motivations are familiar the world over. A good read that's quick and light, but with a heavy dark heart.
