High society. Higher stakes.
This is the 10th episode in the first season of False Idols, an 11-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Diana Renn.
It was bad enough when Layla thought that the Muharib was planning an attack on Washington, D.C., but when she discovers that the explosives were sent to Cairo instead and delivered to a storage site near the US embassy, the danger suddenly seems a whole lot closer. Faced with an impending crisis, Layla knows she has to have all her wits about her…or she’ll blame herself for the consequences.
Layla el-Deeb left Egypt for good eleven years ago, after a childhood spent in Cairo’s slums. Now she’s a language expert for the FBI…and she’s right back where she started, in Cairo, investigating a terrorist organization that’s funding its activities through fraudulent art sales. But this isn’t the Cairo she knew. She’s landed right in the middle of the city’s glittering elite, whose dealings in the art world may be the key to infiltrating the terrorist network. Undercover in the place she was born, trying to fit in with the city’s high rollers, Layla is a stranger in every way—even to herself.
