"Right on time," Daniel Mansen mouths to Alice as she pushes him to his death. Haunted by these words, Alice becomes obsessed with discovering how a man she didn't know could predict her actions. On the day of the funeral, Daniel's cousin, Thom, finds a piece of paper in Daniel's room detailing the exact time and place of his death.

As Thom and Alice both search for answers, they become knotted together in a story of obsession, hidden truths and the gaps in everyday life that can destroy or save a person.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"It's a tale that will keep them wondering, gasping, thinking, smiling, grimacing, rereading. What more can a reader ask for?" - Spinetingler Magazine "I wouldn't have stopped reading if my house was on fire!" - Cas Peace "Tight, evocative gut-punches tempered by the desperate details of everyday life" - Shaun Kupfer, author of White Male, 34 "This is the type of story that keeps the reader up half the night" - Maureen Vincent-Northam, author of 'The Writer's ABC checklist', Hereford"The pacing is excellent, the characters fragile, flawed and consumed with grief and guilt. I could not recommend this book enough." - Review posted on goodreads.com"An intruiging, satisfying read" - David Hebblethwaite"Ellipsis is a very stylish, compelling read that will stay with you for a long time, and Sparkling Books have very much lived up to their name in their presentation of this title. Nikki Dudley has a burgeoning literary career that should go on from strength to strength following the publication of the magnificent Ellipsis. I look forward to reading more works by this great writer." - Kevin Mahoney, Authortrek.com "Exciting, psychologically complex, and disconcerting, it is a powerful tale of two misfits trying to uncover long hidden secrets about themselves and their pasts. Dudley has an often startling eye for description and her simple poetic prose will delight readers looking for something slightly different in the crime thriller genre." - Sam Ruddock, Writers' Centre, Norwich"This is a work of literacy .. the pleasure is in the writing style" - The Truth About Books

“Great Debut Novel”

“Great book to carry in the tube”

Cleverly written thriller that once you start to read it, you will not be able to put it down. By being set in the tube, it makes it perfect to get into the characters minds when you are commuting.
Well developed and... More
