A very good medical/science thriller. Set in the future the book tells the story of a journey through the body. The author combines elements of science fiction, medicine and mystery to tell a great tale of how medical and scientific personnel combine to try and save a member of their own by using new and unorthodox medicine.
An atomic submarine is reduced to a size smaller than a single red blood cell, and is injected into a dying man. The crew struggles to save the man's life by locating and destroying a blood clot before the submarine returns to its original size.
This story was based on a screenplay by Harry Kleiner that was made into a movie in the 1960's.
Four men and a woman are reduced to a microscopic fraction of their original size, sent in a miniaturized atomic sub through a dying man's carotid artery to destroy a blood clot in his brain. If they fail, the entire world will be doomed.
