Started this NZ based story on the weekend.

From the Blurb:

The New Zealand government – led by autocratic Prime Minister Wynyard Nairn – approves the establishment of a USA naval facility, and in the middle of Wellington’s pristine harbour.

Given the anti-nuclear stance in the country, all hell breaks out!
