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.

Wonderfully done

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

Disturbing but, engrossing

A somewhat frightening peek at the world behind social media. In different societies being an 'influencer' may not reap the benefits of which they dream.

Instagram? More like Stalkergram, amirite?

Cool story about the dangers of putting too much information online. Love that it was set in Lagos. Don't think I've read anything set in Nigeria before. I need to fix that. Any recommendations?

what am i missing!?

There are 6 novellas in the Hush collection. This book is one of them. I didn't really care for it. I think i am in the minority here. It was one of those books that you're staring into space when it ends wondering, "was that it!!??" The narrator, Adepero Oduye was great though. 🤷‍♀️
