“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
”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
