High society. Higher stakes.
This is the 2nd episode in the first season of False Idols, an 11-episode serial from Serial Box. This episode written by Patrick Lohier.
Layla zeroes in on her targets, but it hardly feels like FBI work. Partying with young socialites, international ski trips—what does she have to show for it all? She has to get her head back in the game. When she makes a move, though, it backfires, turning the spotlight on her instead.
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.
