New Episode: False Idols S1E5 “Family and Friends”

High society. Higher stakes.

This is the 5th episode in the first season of False Idols, an 11-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Patrick Lohier.

Raw from her disturbing encounter with Pierce, Layla heads to New York with Bennett and James Rothkopf. For a while, she’s able to pretend that they’re just on a normal trip, but when the time comes to tighten the net on Bennett, Layla finds herself in a quandary: She likes the Rothkopfs. Can she bring herself to ruin their lives?

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.
