On April 14th, Acorn Media will release Ruth Rendell Mysteries - Set 4 on DVD. This 2-disc set will contain two special installments of the series, running 353 minutes long, plus bonus material described below. Cost is $39.99 SRP (in Canada, it's CA$46.99), with video on the epsiodes presented in full screen (note, though, that the bonus documentary is in widescreen). Here is the studio description of the contents, followed by the package art:
    In these two Inspector Wexford specials, the kindly, compassionate detective investigates the disappearance of his doctor's daughter and an environmental protest that goes horribly wrong. As always, award-winning writer Ruth Rendell weaves incisive social observation into her compelling plots, showing why critics and fans regard her as the reigning queen of the British literary mystery.

    • "Simisola" - Chief Inspector Wexford's Nigerian-born physician asks the detective to look into the abrupt disappearance of his 22-year-old daughter. The trail eventually leads Wexford and DI Mike Burden to two murders, and the investigators grapple with an emotionally charged case complicated by racial and class misunderstandings. Approx. 152 min.
    • "Road Rage" - While environmental activists disrupt the construction of a highway bypass, the body of a missing German tourist turns up in the woods, strangled and sexually assaulted. As clashes between protesters and security forces escalate into violence, a radical group engineers a series of kidnappings, with Wexford's beloved wife among the hostages. Approx. 201 min.
    • Special Features:
      • Super Sleuths: Inspector Wexford, a documentary featuring George Baker
      • Ruth Rendell biography
