About the Book 

New York Times bestselling author Danielle Trussoni brings together the best elements of literary and popular fiction in her thrillers— they’re smart and complex, with fascinating characters, intricately plotted storylines, and timely themes that resonate with a wide readership. Her upcoming Fall 2024 release, THE PUZZLE BOX, which Random House will publish in hardcover on October 8, 2024, is no exception. The story centers on a neurodivergent protagonist in a high stakes international adventure, racing against the clock and hidden enemies to solve the world’s most complex puzzle. And at the same time, it’s a multi-layered novel with strong feminist overtones, as it shines a bright light on the true history of female rulers in Japan. In the novel, puzzle genius Mike Brink has been invited to Tokyo to open the legendary Dragon Box, a mysterious nineteenth-century puzzle that has remained unsolved for over 150 years. Mike’s mission to solve the mystery takes him across Japan, from the Imperial Palace in Tokyo to the pristine forests of Hakone to historic Kyoto to an ancient cave in Kyushu, and he becomes caught in the power struggle of two sisters descended from an ancient samurai clan. The secrets of their family are locked in a deadly puzzle box that, when opened, could change the future of the Japanese monarchy and women in Japan.
