Comrade Pyotr Shapirov has a secret of vital importance to world science but the only man with the skill to extract it from his comatose brain is American scientist Albert Morrison.¬† Natalya Boranova, sent by Russian high command to get Morriosn’s help will stop at nothing to ensure his co-operation.¬† But there is one major problem¬† -the necessity for human miniaturisation. Wrenched from a routine conference and transported to a vast underground Soviet City dedicated to scientific experiment, Morrison is shrunk to a microscopic fraction of normal size and p0laced in a specially designed ‘submarine’ to be injected into Shapirov’s veins to travel deep into the uncharted regions of the brain – and with only twelve hours to complete his task, Morrison must find the origins of human thought.
