Too Easy

J.M. Green’s prose is blistering — funny, real and nuanced in just the right proportions. This is my kind of crime writing. Peter Doyle, Ned Kelly winning author of GET RICH QUICK and AMAZE YOUR FRIENDS

Funny, complex, and very human, in Stella, JM Green has created a character readers simply love. William McInnes, award-winning actor and author of FULL BORE, HOLIDAYS, THAT’D BE RIGHT

Stella Hardy returns, and this time she’s battling outlaw bikie gangs, corrupt cops, and a powerful hunger for pani puri.

Too Easy is published by Scribe and is available now from Booktopia and all good bookshops.

Interview about Too Easy with UK Crime


“…Expect something as dark as Footscray in a midnight blackout…Green’s heroine is sharp and sassy and as hard-boiled as a 10-minute egg … There is more than enough intrigue to keep the pages turning and enough classy dialogue to raise a wry smile. Bleak but chic.”

Newtown Review of Books
“On the noirish side of comic farce, this is an absolutely terrific series, with a strong sense of the melting pot of different cultures and backgrounds, and the smells, sights and sounds that go with that, plus great characters, pitch-perfect dialogue and a sharp, dry, acerbic sense of humour…”

Fair Dinkum Crime
“[JM Green] has captured the essence of Melbourne living, provided a thoroughly modern heroine and a supporting cast that oozes familiarity in a story that is an absolute hoot, where even the scary bits are tinged with comedy.”
