MI6 were tracking a French scientist, Victoir Durand. While working for the French military he had developed an astonishing new kind of weapons technology. He’d then walked out, taking his project, which he called ‘Firestorm’ with him. He knew he could make a fortune selling it, and everyone wanted to get their hands on Firestorm. Not least the British and MI5 were tasked to steal it. The trouble was, they needed a ‘clean skin’ with a cool head and remarkable memory to perform the task.

The theft relied on a whole set of codes which were vital to piece Firestorm together. Unfortunately Harry had broken all the rules and taken the codes home, the very day burglars got into his house, and stole his briefcase. It quickly became apparent that the burglars must have had some remarkable skills to break through Harry’s security systems.

The thieves also got their hands on a prototype weapon, a gun concealed in a mobile phone. Luckily one of them JJ left his DNA at the scene and Harry quickly traced him. He was a genius with a photographic memory, he’d also accidentally shot his friend, Kyle, with the adapted phone. Tom and Harry knew they needed JJ and they had they had the knowledge to blackmail him!

JJ was sent into Durand’s offices. He had five minutes to beat the security systems and enter the codes. The chances of him getting out were minimal. However, he decided to take the risk in return for assurances that Kyle would be taken care of. Despite the obstacles JJ made it to the laptop in time, but just as he was about to enter the codes Durand came in, followed by a gunman, who demanded the laptop, and shot Durand. JJ managed to hide and hide the laptop with him.

The team realised that the French had had Durand assassinated. The theft had failed, but they had prevented anyone else getting their hands on Firestorm. However, they were convinced there was no way JJ could make it out, so Tom was astonished to see him turn up at Thames House, with the laptop in hand. Impressed Tom tried to convince JJ that he had a future with MI5, but JJ wasn’t interested.
