The protagonist is a family member of Amber and one of the Courts of Chaos.
His half elder brother from the Courts of Chaos made obey the spirit which occupied the second daughter's body of the prime minister of the neighboring country Begman.

"I believe I've solved your mystery," he said then. "Do you recall your lessons on Respondances and High Compellings?"
"Are you trying to tell me . . . ?"
"The creature you see before you, inhabiting a not unattractive human form, is a ty'iga," he explained.
["Sign of Chaos" of The Great Book of Amber by Roger Zelazny]
I'd like to know "what" is implied after "me."
Thank you in advance for your help.

    I read this simply that the ellipsis (the three dots ...) indicate that the speaker was interrupted by the person who offered the explanation. The other speaker's sentence was simply cut off and we don't know what the rest of the sentence might have been.
