Keyshia and Clyde

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Treasure E. Blue–acclaimed author of Harlem Girl Lost and A Street Girl Named Desire–is back with a heartbreaking urban love story of two star-crossed lovers up against the dirtiest dealer Harlem has ever seen.

Knocked up by a Southern preacher, Keyshia is sent to live with her aunt in New York, but after a horrific act of violence, the timid young woman becomes ice-cold–turning tricks and finding comfort in a crack vial.

Clyde and his two brothers find themselves living with a family friend after their mother is shot by their own father–leaving her institutionalized and unable to communicate, and him behind bars. Clyde’s older brother leads a decent life, working as a bank manager and trying to keep Clyde off the streets, but Clyde’s younger bro is the coldest killer in Harlem and takes every opportunity to involve Clyde in his infamous robberies-turned-blood baths.

When Keyshia and Clyde meet, they are instantly drawn to each other. Forced to pay back a large sum of cash to one nasty Harlem kingpin or risk the lethal consequences, Keyshia and Clyde use their tight game and their loyalty to pull off the impossible. And when Clyde is falsely accused of a bank hit, Keyshia vows to stick by her man–no matter the cost.

Praise for Treasure E. Blue’s A Street Girl Named Desire:

“Treasure Blue continues and solidifies his position as the true heir to Iceberg Slim and Donald Goines. A book full of gritty realism, violence, drug abuse, and hope; the book is simply off the damn hook!”
African American Literary Book Club

“Drenched in drama, drugs, vengeance, power, pain, envy, love and hope . . . all the elements needed to satisfy [the] desire for a good read.”

Jun 09, 2008 – What s a girl to do when she gets the short end of the stick? Seek revenge!Keyshia and ClydeTreasure E. Blue. Ballantine/One World, $14 paper (368p) Keyshia Simmons, abandoned and brutalized by nearly every person who was supposed to care for her, turns to drugs and sex in Blue s tawdry new novel. Unlikely help comes from Clyde Barker, a stickup man who inadvertently rescues her from the clutches of a violent drug-dealer. A romance blossoms, and when the dead dealer s associates demand restitution, Keyshia and Clyde go on a crime spree to raise the cash, all the while confronting the demons of their past and wishing they could go on the straight-and-narrow. Clyde gets collared for a crime he didn t commit, and it takes Keyshia a few years (she earns a law degree) to prove his innocence and help him get justice for his wronged parents. By the close of this predictable tale, the good guys win and the bad guys get what s coming to them.
