Dead Upon Arrival (Archer MacAnninch Book 4)
Gaius Petrius Ruso is a divorced and down-on-his-luck army doctor who has made the rash decision to seek his fortune in an inclement outpost of the Roman Empire, namely Britannia. After a hour shift at the army hospital, he succumbs to a moment of weakness and rescues an injured slave girl, Tilla, from the hands of her abusive owner. And before he knows it, Ruso is caught in the middle of an investigation into the deaths of prostitutes working out of the local bar.

This explanatory pilot was remade as the opening episode of the series which began just over a year later, with slight changes Neil James Innes born 9 December is an English writer, comedian and musician.
