Happy publication day to Stephanie Wrobel and her masterful second psychological thriller This Might Hurt, which launches in US paperback today (Penguin Random House / Berkley).

This Might Hurt is a thrilling novel about power, secrecy and guilt, set against the backdrop of a sinister cult. In the run up to publication in hardback last year, This Might Hurt was named a most anticipated book of 2022 by Newsweek, E!, Parade, Katie Couric Media, Betches, Criminal Element, Shondaland and Bustle, to name a few. Since then, it has been attracting glowing endorsements:

‘Expertly paced, hugely unsettling, and perfectly dark, you’ll be gripped in this clever exploration of fear and vulnerability right until the flawless ending.’ Ashley Audrain

‘Deliciously dark and so very clever, This Might Hurt is a tense, unsettling and twisty read. I was gripped from beginning to end. A brilliant, heart-thumping and compulsive thriller. Claire Douglas

‘Filled with menace, this was a gripping and compulsive read from first page to last.’ Liz Nugent

Congratulations, Stephanie! We’re thrilled that more readers will be pulled into the inescapable world of Wisewood.
