Banter starts out as a story about yet another man seducing women and punishing them for having a good time, but our guy isn't as smart as he thinks he is. He has just wooed Samantha, and what she doesn't share during their razor-sharp repartee is that she has a lethal hobby too. What he doesn't know will kill him, and anyone else that takes Samantha's fantasy. Bear witness to the rise and fall of a savoury serial killer. 

I released Banter a couple of years ago as a complete novel, (it started life as two short stories, but I couldn't let Samantha go without giving her story a proper ending), and decided to share it here. It is for sale on Amazon if you want, but I really don't mind if you'd rather read it here. I'll take readership over money anyday.  - https://www.amazon.com.au/Banter-M-J-Moore/dp/154637096X
