"they meant to hit the house of Gordon's brother's killer"
Is it common to use the Genitive twice and in a sequence ? It sounds confusing to me. Wouldn't it be clearer to rewrite as the killer of Gordon's brother ? This sentence I grab from an article , so it was written by a native. I assume it is the way they use it, but since I didn't see this structure very often I wonder if I should write like that or using of. Any suggestion ?
