Tongued With Fire

A Story of Family Pride and Murder


“I always look forward to the next book by Norman Russell.... One to read slowly, and savour like a fine wine.” – MyShelf’s review of the ‘Oxford’ series 

Frank Renfield, Baron Renfield of Renfield Hall, will go to any lengths to preserve his noble heritage. Along with his fiercely determined wife Carole, he concocts a plan to marry their daughter to Karl Langer, a young American millionaire - a union that will solve all Frank’s urgent problems. Unfortunately for her parents, Jessica is in love with Alan Lavender, a handsome, but crude young man.

When Alan’s uncle is found murdered, suspicion immediately falls on Frank as a result of his uneasy relationship with the man. The Renfields throw a lavish birthday party for Carole, but the evening is tainted when Alan is killed and a young man shoots himself dead. And things take a sharp turn for the worse when another, unconnected, murder is laid at Frank’s door.

Can Frank prove his innocence? And will the murderer be caught before they strike again?
