Atomic Sea by C. M. Lance

First came Chernobyl, the nuclear power station that contaminated most of Europe. Then Fukushima, pounded into radioactive rubble by a tsunami.
And now … Broome?
Burnt-out scientist Lena Whalen is attending a conference in Broome on Worm Turning, a new nuclear-waste reprocessing plant fast-tracked after a recent disaster. Everyone loves award-winning Worm Turning – a certain Great Power even says it’ll take full responsibility for any pollution or security problems. Unfortunately it’s lying about why.
Lena’s techie sister Jessie arrives for a holiday, but when life onshore becomes surprisingly threatening their only refuge is skipper Simon’s old lugger. Unfortunately Simon is lying too.
Floating just off Broome is a blue boat carrying two corpses and a lethal cargo. The grand gala opening of Worm Turning is just days away, and a distant cyclone called Cyril is on the move.
And Lena discovers being stuck on a committee isn’t her worst nightmare after all.
