Holding Hands is the fourteenth case of World Edition, as well as the sixth case to take place in the Sahara Region.


The Supreme Police went to Cairo to hunt for the remaining hitman when Meghan received an encrypted message that the hitman was ready to kill someone at the Al-Azhar Park. Much to Hakam's shock, the victim was revealed to be his own father, Mahmood Farra, which had burnt to death on the park walkways. Mid-investigation, Hakam and the player found out a threat from Al-Malik Wa'al Khair--the supposed leader of Ad-Dima--to the killer, which proved their presence in Cairo. Furthermore, Safira Wawanakwa took Hakam hostage on Ad-Dima's command.

Afterword There's not much I can correct, this case is great! I just don't see very well how the case name links to the plot and maybe it could be more original. That aside, Holding Hands is fantastic! PetersCorporal (talk) 17:11, September 21, 2016 (UTC)

The victim's wife, Hakam's mother, Amira Farra was revealed to be her husband's killer. Amira tried denying involvement, she eventually admitted to killing him because Al-Malik Wa'al Khair sent her a threat message--whether she killed her husband in her own hand, or Ad-Dima would kill the entire Farra family. Amira had no other choice but to kill her own husband. Later at the trial, Amira and Safira (for taking Hakam hostage) were sent into the trial. Judge Rosenbloom issued Amira a 45-year sentence for the murder and involvement in Ad-Dima. Before the judge could move on into Safira's sentence, Safira detonated a smoke bomb, only to shoot Amira and allow herself to escape.

After the trial, Maxima teamed up with the player to make a surprise gift to Hakam. Maxima asks Seif Al-Nahyan if he has got any tickets for the opening ceremony of the R3 Rally in Dubai. Hakam however refused the invitation and said that he decided to go to Suez since it was his mother's birthplace before she had met Mahmood in Morocco. Maxima then agrees and offers to pay for the flight to Suez. Hakam, however is thankful for their help and agrees to go to the opening ceremony of the R3 Rally with Maxima in Dubai before heading to Suez in which Chief Oakley agrees to.

Meanwhile, Marina and the player went to the abandoned metro station, where they found an old voice message sent from Cedric Aegros to the leader of Ad-Dima. They then interrogated Cedric in jail to ask who the leader was. Cedric refused to tell the detectives but he directed them to the park, where they found a manuscript which Bodhi translated. The manuscript said that they have to go where the sea separated the land which they translated it to the city of Suez. An lead also told them that Safira Wawanakwa was heading to Suez so the team decided to book a flight to Suez immediately where they found a body shattered by gunshots.
