This is the 11th episode in the first season of False Idols, an 11-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Patrick Lohier.
Even though she prevented the embassy bombing, Layla’s work in Cairo isn’t quite done. The painful part is still ahead: revealing all she knows to Bennett Rothkopf. Unfortunately, Bennett isn’t the only one who takes this news badly…
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.
