Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
Great Britain's "Queen of Crime," Ruth Rendell, first began publishing her psychological mysteries in 1964, typically focusing on the why rather than the "whodunit." This DVD set collects four telefilms originally aired on England's ITV and based on books Rendell wrote in 1965, 1968, and 1982, plus an original story written just for the television production. Included here are "Master of the Moor" (originally aired in September 1994), starring Colin Firth as Stephen Whalby, a solitary man living on the moors who is thought to have killed a number of young women. In "Vanity Dies Hard" (March 1995), Alice Fielding (Eleanor David) suspects murder after her best friend disappears. "The Secret House of Death" (March 1996) finds newly divorced Susan Townsend (Amanda Redman) coming upon her next-door neighbor, who has been hacked to death. And finally in "The Double" (January 1997), Lisa (Camilla Power) meets a woman who resembles her in almost every way -- including a shared interest in Lisa's husband.
