"In the 1970s the Soviets set up a germ warfare program called Biopreparat. It was huge. They were weaponising anthrax, ebola, smallpox on a massive scale. The West panicked and created an organization to combat the threat. It was known as the Network. It was based in no country, reported to no one and was utterly deniable. It did things democratic governments couldn’t. They were insane, totally out of control... Basically, that’s who’s after you."
The Network is a shadowy organization hunting down the people who possess the manuscript sequel of a cult graphic novel called The Utopia Experiments. The organization has two hit men on the hunt for the manuscript and Jessica Hyde: Arby and Lee. The Network also has people on the inside of most world governments and major corporations. Corvadt Ltd. is its primary front organization.
