Backstabbing Myth is the fifth case of World Edition, as well as the fifth case to take place in Europe.


Wanting to monitor poet Cedric Aegros, Chief Oakley directed The Supreme Police toward Athens, Greece where Aegros lived. Lionel told Hakam and the player to find Cedric and bring him to the station. Tough luck hit them when they found the Greek finance minister, Aleksander Xanthopoulos, stabbed in the back and left for dead. They had to place Harriet Rose under suspicion once again along with the victim's wife, Gaiana Xanthopoulos and Greek politician Alejandro Metaxas. Not too long after that, Gaiana reported a robbery at a hotel resort.

The duo investigated the robbed resort and the Corinth Canal where they found clues to add Portuguese politician Carlos Sousa and crime writer Danyal Tiryaki to the list of suspects. Not only that, but they found the safe that—according to Gaiana—was supposed to hold the murder weapon. The safe was broken into via binary code which was a new lead about the killer. Soon after those events, the team witnessed an announcement from Carlos that if the killer of the deceased finance minister was not found, the politician would cut off all ties with Greece. This could cause a financial crisis.

After investigating the final leads of the investigation and interrogating Carlos about cutting all ties with Greece, they had enough clues to find the killer. Alejandro was found guilty of the murder. He said that the victim was doing something shady and Alejandro knew that he had to be stopped. So he had broken into the safe, got the dagger and killed the victim. The judge sentenced him to 30 years in jail. Alejandro's response was that even though he stopped a corrupt government official, he was not saying anything about it to the player. Chief Oakley told Marina to help Hakam and the player to find leads about Cedric and to find what shady deals the victim has been doing.

Marina helped the player ask the victim's wife about her husband's actions. Gaiana replied that she had not noticed anything strange about Aleksander but directed them to the hotel resort. They found a safe that contained a USB stick about Idole de Lavanda. It also mentioned politician Carlos Sousa, which called for an interrogation. When Carlos was asked about Idole de Lavanda, he was confused about what the player was saying. This made Marina suspicious.

Meanwhile Hakam and the player found Cedric and asked him about Idole de Lavanda. Cedric was confused as he didn't know what the team was talking about. Hoping to refresh Cedric's memories, they investigated the Acropolis. They found a torn photo which revealed a picture of Cedric and Idole de Lavanda from probably 10 years ago. When Hakam showed the photo to Cedric, Cedric said that they had met in Rome many years before. Hakam asked for the identity of Idole de Lavanda but Cedric unfortunately did not remember.

A folder from the Acropolis showed notes written by Danyal Tiryaki about Idole de Lavanda. Danyal said that he had heard about it from an unknown source in the Corinth Canal. When they found a Greek message written on a stone slab, Hakam did not hesitate to ask Danyal for translation. Danyal found out that the message said that Idole de Lavanda was hiding where a poet had been twenty years ago. Remembering Cedric's words, they decided that the next location was Rome.
