Skin Deep is a novella, and the second book in the Legion series.[1] Legion: Skin Deep is a modern-day thriller/mystery with some science fiction undertones. In this story, Stephen is taken on a case to find a corpse with important information encoded in its DNA.


Stephen Leeds, AKA Legion, is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae: hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills. As the new story begins, Leeds and his aspects are hired by I3 (Innovative Information Incorporated) to recover a corpse stolen from the local morgue. But there's a catch. The corpse is that of a pioneer in the field of experimental biotechnology, a man whose work concerned the use of the human body as a massive storage device. He may have embedded something in the cells of his now dead body. And that something might be dangerous...
