It turns out that smuggling dangerous nuclear warheads out of a government research facility is ridiculously easy. The problems only arise when you try to smuggle it back in again. This brilliant British farce documents Roy Tappen's attempt to reduce his own, accidentally acquired, personal nuclear stockpile by trying again and again to return the warheads to their rightful place within the grounds of the Robinson Heath research centre. Anyone who has ever fought against government bureaucracy will recognise characters in this brilliant novel.
