Three years ago, Sarah Kennedy thought she was hired as a translator for a corporate military prison in Baghdad, only to discover that she would be acting as an interrogator instead, retrieving information from dangerous prisoners of war - by any means necessary.
Now, Lily Strauss, a disgraced reporter in the waning days of newspaper journalism, must uncover Sarah's story, cutting through webs of corporate lies and government deception until finally faced with the choice between her own journalistic ideals, and the devastating consequences of telling the truth.
On the Head of a Pin, a political thriller in the tradition of Network and A Few Good Men, is an exploration of who watches the watchers, and what happens when they look away.
