Back in a Moment…

on October 21, 2013 in Misc

It’s tough writing these reports when I have to leave town.  But I have no choice.  I may be treasure hunting here in Colorado, but a minister in Cairo now suspects I smuggled an ancient Gnostic papyrus scroll out of his country.  I told him I rescued it from the black market.  He told me I stole it by raiding a tomb.  I told him I handed it over to an expert on Egyptian Antiquities.  He told me the expert was murdered.

Only an old professor friend can help me now, and he’s at my alma mater — the University of Chicago.  His contacts with the Egyptian underworld are legendary.  If I can meet with him and he can help me track down the scroll, I won’t be arrested.  I’ll write more in a couple days…

Stay tuned.  And stay safe.

    Alex – Thanks, darlin’!

    I love this! I hope Layla’s adventures are the perfect dose of excitement and safety, because I KNOW what she can get up to… though I DO have to hassle Helena a bit to get Charity McCay ready to go–her story needs to be out there, too!!!

  4. Layla should do something in Syria. Syria is way more interesting for a woman of her skills than Cairo.

  5. I have complete faith in you, Layla!

  6. Helena says:

    Hart — Layla is about to kick Helena’s butt for not finishing the editing yet on Charity. But she’ll get there!

  7. Helena says:

    Michael – Oh, Cairo these days can be dangerously interesting too! But since she has contacts in Syria too she might be headed that way.

  8. Helena says:

    Carol – Salam and shokron to you, Carol darling.

  9. Old Kitty says:

    Oooooh!! Good luck Layla!!!!! Take care

  10. Helena says:

    Old Kitty — Layla is on guard, alright. Or is it en garde?

  11. Things are really amping up for Layla!

  12. Helena says:

    Milo – Amping up indeed.
