A non-fantasy Adults novel.

The African nation of Nmkwami is on the brink on independence. The governer misinterprets a remark about celebrations to "mark changover" as being about a terrorist, Mark Changeover. Due to an overeager buearocracy and active imaginations on the part of Nmkwami's most prominent citizen Changover develops to the point where he has a mistress and an atom bomb.

This is one for the real Diana Wynne Jones completeist. The style is very different from her childrens novels and the large number of characters and the complicated plot make it a bit hard to follow.
