Treasure is a new novella by Oyinkan Braithwaite published as part of Hush, Amazon original stories which featured five other award-winning crime writers. The stories range from political mysteries to psychological thrillers. Exploring the “nature of truth and the risks in uncovering the lies”, they present tales on conspirators, psychics, deceptive lovers and desperate killers.
Treasure is a dark comic short story of class divide and the contemporary challenges of creating and preserving insta-famous lives. The titular, Treasure, must deal with a macho mechanic stalker fan. His love for her cannot be expressed merely by emojis, rabid comments or double taps, and so, he must meet her in the flesh.
Judging from Oyinkan’s ability to tell dark, twisted stories with humour, this promises to be a chilling yet exciting read. The thirty-one paged short story can be read or listened to in one sitting. Only available in e-book and audiobook formats, they can be downloaded from Amazon.com to read on kindle or listen as an audiobook.
