Ellipsis- what's it all about?

“Right on time.”

Daniel Mansen mouths to the woman who pushes him to his death.

Only drawn out of madness by Daniel, the murderer, Alice becomes obsessed with discovering how a man she doesn't know could predict her actions. Similarly, Daniel’s cousin, Thom, is driven to explore the circumstances of the death when he finds a note at the family home detailing the time and place it occurred.

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