Good choice, Bill. I'll have to see if I can pick some more of them up as it's been a long time since I read one. Post a Comment. In his best novels, two of which are included in the volume pictured here, Bill S. Ballinger used the technique of telling what appear to be two different stories in alternating chapters of first- and third-person narration.
The now hard-to-find tome was considered a masterfully crafted example of the mystery genre in its time, and was unique in that it alternated chapters in different voices first and third person until the conclusion, when the two different narratives melded together and tied up the plot. The actor is said to have decided on the project because he took a liking to the script, about a magician who meets a woman, gets married, and is on his way towards living a relatively normal life, until life decides to throw him some serious curveballs. The mystery builds from there — and my curiosity is piqued. The Tooth and the Nail will be directed by Jeong Shik one of the directors of the omnibus picture Epitaph and is garnering interest due to the Ballinger story the plot pays homage to. Once production has cast the female lead and supporting cast, the movie will begin filming in the latter half of the year.
