About the Author
J.M. Green is a crime writer based in Melbourne's western suburbs. Her debut novel, Good Money, the first hardboiled-crime novel featuring Stella Hardy, was shortlisted for a 2016 Ned Kelly Award, the Sisters in Crime's Davitt Award for best debut, as well as the 2014 Victorian Premier's Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript. She divides her time between writing in her backyard studio and working as a librarian. Her next book, Too Easy, is the second in the Stella Hardy series.

"With a big heart, a loud mouth, a thirst for alcohol and a propensity for choosing the wrong man to love, Stella Hardy is a wisecracking flawed heroine, and a promising addition to Australian crime fiction."
--The Saturday Paper

"[The] characters are complex, engaging and, most of all, real. You find yourself caring for them, laughing with them, and forgetting that this book is only paper-thin. The plot itself is clever and suspenseful, but it is the enigmatic and three-dimensional portrayals that make Good Money extra special."
--Eliza Graves-Brown, Lip Mag

"Gritty and terrifically engaging, this hardboiled story with its matching prose had me hooked from the first page. Leading lady Stella Hardy is a charming mix of chaotic and cool. She had me grinning like an accomplice as I read. The authentic characters and dry humour lift Good Money to that most satisfying place--unique, intriguing, quality crime. Green is an assured and bold new author doing already what great crime novelists do--delivering a bloody good story."
--Honey Brown, award-winning author of After the Darkness and Through the Cracks

"Stella Hardy is certainly a witty and engaging heroine, although as a Saints supporter clearly doomed. A satisfying romp through corporate and political corruption, love, drugs, sex and the Western suburbs."
--Annie Hauxwell, author of the Catherine Berlin thriller series

"The narrative flows as easily as the Maribyrnong River; Green is a welcome addition to the growing coterie of Australian female crime writers."
--Thuy On, Sunday Age

"Green writes with a dry humour and wit that is enjoyable and more importantly, relatable...The novel progresses at a cracking pace and readers will have no time to be bored."
--Pakenham Gazette

"A rattling good story."
--The West Australian

"Set in Melbourne's western suburbs, the story races along with action scenes that have just the right amount of gritty reality to ensure that readers are along for the ride. Leading lady Stella is in equal parts engaging, exasperating and entertaining and I hope we see her in another outing soon."
--Maryanne Vagg, Good Reading
