Anne ✨ Finds Joy (annefindsjoy) | 718 comments NIGERIA: I just read My Sister, the Serial Killer and loved it! It's a debut from a young up and coming Nigerian author, and the story is set in Lagos, Nigeria. It's a dark'sh noir type of read, contemporary, with dry satire/commentary. I thought it was really clever and unusual, and the audio narration was superb!
And the cover is so eye-catching!
