Publisher's Summary

A darkly comic short story of class divide, the lives we invent, and the very real risks of preserving an Insta-fame facade by the award-winning author of My Sister, the Serial Killer.

Treasure is a wannabe Instagram influencer in Lagos, Nigeria. She shows off a luxurious life in a gated community that her almost five thousand followers can only dream of. @Sho4Sure is determined to be part of it. The macho mechanic is Treasure’s number one fan, and double taps and blushing emojis are no longer enough. He needs to meet her in the flesh. If only Treasure were more prepared for destiny.

Oyinkan Braithwaite’s Treasure is part of Hush, a collection of six stories, ranging from political mysteries to psychological thrillers, in which deception can be a matter of life and death. Each piece can be read or listened to in one truly chilling sitting.

Critic Reviews

"With excellent pacing and the use of local dialects, Oduye brings the city of Lagos and these characters into sharp focus…the story’s ending is compelling and holds a few surprises." AudioFile Magazine

For a 1 hour short story this was great

I loved author's my sister the serial killer and this had many of the same elements. I didn't know it was going to be this short so I was a little disappointed but for a short story this was great. I love african stories. Author has unique style to combine light and dark, comedy to crime. Something refreshing to read for a change. Narrator is the best though I never understood the hero's name and some other sentences were lost to me as well because of the thick accent. Am not native english speaking.

My favorite from Hush collection so far!!

This is the third story I listened to in the Hush collection and so far it was my favorite! I loved the accent of the narrator too, it really added to the setting of the story and made it more enjoyable.

Not My Favorite of the Hush Collection

Treasure is Book #2 in the Hush Collection by Amazon. I must say, that out of the five that I've read thus far, this is by far my least favorite.

I struggled to even follow the story and didn't sense any dark comedy. I also wasn't super thrilled with the narration, which felt robotic.

I haven't read anything from this author previously, and I still won't hesitate to try her again, because I'm a firm believer that it takes a special writer to write a short story, so I'm willing to give it another shot based on that!

Great

After reading My Sister The Serial Killer I knew Braithwaite was an author I wanted to follow,and this story did not disappoint. I hope she comes out with a book of short stories, they would be fantastic.

Intense

Brilliant short story. Great performance. In the end, I admit still wanting more consequence but the characters were developed quickly enough for the length without feeling rushed.

I picked this up because I read, "My Sister the Serial Killer." This did not disappoint.

Not interesting enough to go on.

I struggled to listen. Rather boring. Not worth it to me. Going to locate another audiblebook.

Wonderfully done

This was quite enjoyable! The narration was superb. I appreciated the storyline-people pretending to be someone else on social media.
