MURDER AT THE SEXI, Dr. Richard R. Karlen’s
fourth novel to be published by Ironbound Press, is a psychological study of
the behavior of an ordinary person who becomes involved in extraordinary
circumstances. In MURDER AT THE SEXI, the protagonist, Jonathan Cole, a
middle-aged physician from a suburban town in New Jersey, Scotch Plains, is
recovering from a reactive depression following the death of his wife and
travels to Spain’s Costal del Sol on a two week vacation. On the first day of
his trip, Cole becomes involved in a murder and his two week vacation turns
into a nightmare of mystery and intrigue.
MURDER AT THE SEXI goes beyond
your usual, formula mystery novel as its protagonist gropes to discover a new
meaning to life. While the reader may be entrapped by the book’s adventure
and suspense, how Jonathan Cole finds salvation is the essence of this novel.
In 1973, author Richard R.
Karlen together with his wife and four children lived in a small fishing
village, Almuñécar, on the Costa del Sol for ten months. MURDER AT THE SEXI,
while purely a fictitious story, is largely based upon that experience.
Dr. Karlen’s fifth work
of fiction is a collection of short stories. SATURDAY LUNCH and the KITCHEN
SINK will be published by Ironbound Press in the winter of 2003.
