MI6 work him back to health but James is relieved of all duties because he is blamed for leaking information leading to several agents' deaths while in custody. Determined to clear his name and avenge himself on Zhao, James escapes and extracts information from a known Chinese intelligence officer on Zhao, leading to Cuba and a meeting with a mysterious diver known only as Jinx, and eventually to a meeting with mysterious
British billionaire Gustav Graves, who has perfected a spaceborne mirror designed to beam solar light and heat anywhere in the world for peaceful purposes. But James uncovers mysterious genetic conversion equipment and also finds the solar mirror is in reality a laser cannon that can destroy almost anything in its path on Earth. James now must rescue Jinx (who is conducting her own, identical, investigation of Graves) and learn the truth about Graves' laser cannon, leading to a violent showdown as the weapon is fired onto Earth and begins slicing open a gigantic line of destruction.
