Pine Gap explores the famously strong alliance between Australia and the United States.
But the relationship between the Australian and American intelligence analysts working at Pine Gap isn’t always rosy. Simmering beneath the surface are flashpoints of personality, culture and politics that questions what do you do for your country, what do you do for those you love and what do you do for yourself?
With a new global player encroaching, placing decades of stability under threat, matters of trust, betrayal, love and loyalty will all come into question, and a shocking secret revealed will change everything, pushing the world to the brink of war.
With a storyline inspired by today’s headlines, Pine Gap is a thriller, not to be missed.
