Acorn Media Group
8515 Georgia Avenue, Suite 620, Silver Spring, MD 20910-3403
9781598284300 $49.99 www.acornmedia.com

Foyle's War, Set 6 is a 3-DVD set collecting three episodes of the
compelling British mysteries set in the British coastal town of
Hastings, shortly after the devastation of World War II. DCS
Christopher Foyle is a police investigator whose yearning for
retirement is belayed by unfolding cases of military racism,
international conflict, even an accused traitor unwilling to resist
the sentence of the gallows. The episodes are "The Russian House", in
which the escape of a Russian POW brings calamity and murder, igniting
division between Foyle and a former subordinate; "Killing Time" about
the prospect of absolute disaster involving African American GIs who
want to return home; and "The Hide", a tale about a young woman's
murder and an accused traitor who will not defend himself. Superb
acting is the hallmark of this captivating series, highly recommended
especially for aficionados of British mysteries. 300 minutes,
widescreen, SDH subtitles.
