Adepero Oduye narrates this audiobook as though it were written for her. Speaking in short, pithy chapters, full of sarcasm and self-loathing, she embodies Korede, the older sister of a prodigal sibling who is a serial killer. You will laugh along as this nurse turned cover-up artist works to hide her sister, Ayoola's, murderous habit of breaking up with boyfriends. This is twist on the tale of the prodigal son, with two Nigerian sisters, one an older sibling who gets our sympathy plus our mirth. Oduye is sardonic, mournful, and worried in all the right places, making this an enjoyable listening experience that also somehow rings true, despite the implausible premise. Told in five-minute chapters, this is a title to save for traffic jams. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
