High society. Higher stakes.
This is the 7th episode in the first season of False Idols, an 11-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Diana Renn.
Layla’s life has never been so complicated—she’s dating one of her targets, she’s violating FBI orders by communicating with her family, and she doesn’t feel any nearer to closing in on the Muharib terrorist organization. She’s managed to keep everything in check, though, despite the delicate balance. But when events spin out of control in both her professional and personal life, Layla isn’t sure how much longer she can hold it together.
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.
