Set somewhere in England, in a town called Bogley where the pricipal industry is NUTC - Nuclear Utilization Technology Centre. The two lead (please avoid the pun) characters are Roy and Lizzie Tappen. The year is likely 1977. (The novel first appeared in 1984.)

Edges, corners, and spine are all sharp. Very light soiling. No creases, tears, nor names. Flies open slightly - else a collectible copy. Quote (p. 91) : " ._._. and hoped the glove seals didn't chance to fail. The five looked suitably intimidated, especially at Fortmayne's casual explanation that all you needed for a fatal criticality incident and radiation overdose was to let a few pieces of plutonium close ._._._. ."

Details of the book
The Leaky Establishment
Author:

Langford, David

Title:

The Leaky Establishment

ISBN:

1592241255

_The Leaky Establishment_ is an atomic farce whose author David Langford once worked in the gentle radioactive glow of Britain's nuclear weapons industry, and hilariously satirizes its ghastly bureaucracy from the inside. Black comedy overtakes the unfortunate defence-scientist hero Roy Tappen when a "harmless" theft of office furniture lands him with his very own doomsday nuclear stockpile at home. Chain reactions of insanely comic escapades follow, with disaster piled on disaster, leading the increasingly desperate Tappen to the borders of science fiction as he seeks a way out of the mess.
