Rose worked for the secret services during the war and helped design The Legacy Project - a deadly secret weapon. Now years later it is still operational and Rose's life ambition was to get it taken out of service one way or another. As a committed pacifist she believed such weapons should be de-commissioned. Jules and Harry have been left the challenge to complete Rose's last wish to see The Legacy Project finally de-activated.

Using clues and codes left by Rose, Harry has managed to penetrate the secret bunker complex that contains the nerve centre of The Legacy Project. But unknown to him his presence has been noted and others are searching the complex trying to find and eliminate him.
