High society. Higher stakes.
This is the 8th episode in the first season of False Idols, an 11-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Diana Renn.
James works hard—it’s one of the things Layla loves about him. But when she bursts into his studio in need of comfort after the news of Alberto’s death, she discovers that his work is a little different than she thought it was. And that little difference could be a big deal in the eyes of the FBI.
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.
