To be perfectly honest...."good 4 string chord voicings" are quite limited because of range and timbre....by the time you get enough notes to imply the chord it gets "too thick" IMHO.
A D/Cmaj7 is basically a Cmaj7#11.... So you'll want a high F# on top...so it will sound like a #11 and not a #4....know what I mean?? (its about the register its in).
So, I'm sorry to say I don't know of a "good book" I can recommend for 4 string....
I would highly recommend a 5 string tuned E - C....or just take the plunge and get a 6 string. Its AMAZING what a difference that C string makes in opening up chord voicing opportunities.
FWIW...I hope to have new "Chord" related materials out later this year. Sorry for the tease, but that's the best I can do for now.... The other option would be online lessons. I can show you everything "I" know with online lessons. (shameless plug!
I hope this helps....
