Excerpt: Chinese box

The Chinese Box makes an intriguing (and fairly easy) way of producing
"unputdownable" stories. In this structure you end up with a story within a story within a story, nested several layers deep. As the tale progresses, your readers are left increasingly on tenterhooks, awaiting the outcome of not just one story but an ever-growing number of them.

[EXAMPLE] You might begin by telling what seems to be a straightforward
story, but break off at an intriguing moment when the hero comes across an old document. The document unfolds another intriguing story, but then breaks off midway when it refers the reader to a separate letter. That letter refers the reader to another document, a will perhaps, and that in turn might refer the reader to a videotape locked in a bank vault. Once the videotape has been viewed, the rest of the will can be revealed - the part that your readers have been waiting for. With the reading of the will concluded, readers at last gets to see what was in the rest of the letter, and finally we are returned to the document that started it all off and we find out how it ends. And with all of that over and done with, the main story resumes where it left off many pages ago, and finally draws to a conclusion.

You can add many more layers than this if you like. The important thing is to keep is intriguing, always breaking off just before the big revelation and making your readers wait, in a delicious agony of suspense.
