"The wittiest and most fun murder party you've ever been invited to."--MARIE CLAIRE
WINNER OF THE LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK PRIZE FOR MYSTERY/THRILLER
SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2019 WOMEN'S PRIZE
A short, darkly funny, hand grenade of a novel about a Nigerian woman whose younger sister has a very inconvenient habit of killing her boyfriends
"Femi makes three, you know. Three and they label you a serial killer."
Korede is bitter. How could she not be? Her sister, Ayoola, is many things: the favorite child, the beautiful one, possibly sociopathic. And now Ayoola's third boyfriend in a row is dead.
Korede's practicality is the sisters' saving grace. She knows the best solutions for cleaning blood, the trunk of her car is big enough for a body, and she keeps Ayoola from posting pictures of her dinner to Instagram when she should be mourning her "missing" boyfriend. Not that she gets any credit.
Korede has long been in love with a kind, handsome doctor at the hospital where she works. She dreams of the day when he will realize that she's exactly what he needs. But when he asks Korede for Ayoola's phone number, she must reckon with what her sister has become and how far she's willing to go to protect her.
Sharp as nails and full of deadpan wit, Oyinkan Braithwaite's deliciously deadly debut is as fun as it is frightening.
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.
Korede é amargurada, mas pragmática. Sua irmã mais nova, Ayoola, é a filha favorita, a mais bonita, e, possivelmente, com sérios distúrbios comportamentais. Seus três últimos namorados aparecem mortos. As duas irmãs desempenham papeis inusitados nessa trama de suspense e relações emocionais complexas.
Oyn conduz a trama desse thriller psicológico com maestria que surpreende e encanta o leitor a cada página. Conta uma história cheia de suspense e mistério, com humor peculiar e ácido, sem deixar de lado a complexidade da mente de uma sociopata.
Mais Korede a une vie à mener, elle aussi : elle est secrètement amoureuse de Tane, le séduisant médecin qu'elle croise tous les jours dans les couloirs de l'hôpital où elle travaille comme infirmière. Aussi, lorsque sa jeune soeur jette son dévolu sur Tane, Korede se trouve face à un dilemme : comment continuer à protéger sa soeur, sans risquer la vie de l'homme qu'elle aime ?
