High society. Higher stakes.
This is the 9th episode in the first season of False Idols, an 11-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Patrick Lohier.
Reluctant as she is to find more incriminating evidence about Bennett Rothkopf, Layla knows there’s something there, so she uses the keys she stole to enter the gallery when no one will be around. But when she finds much more than she bargained for, she’s not at all sure she can make it out again.
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.
