Layla’s friendship with Alberto Rossi is beginning to pay off—he invites her to follow up on an exciting lead with him. When the situation turns dangerous, though, Layla has to think quickly to get herself and Alberto away safely without revealing herself as an FBI agent. Will she be able to keep her cover? Or will Alberto be the first to discover her secret?
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.
