They are Ruining Ibiza

Front Cover
University of North Texas Press, 1998 - Fiction - 123 pages
Charles Martyn, PhD, age 60, author of a classic work of literary criticism, is on his second trip to Ibiza - this time with his new wife Susan - searching for his artist son Led. Martyn muses that the first visit was "ruined, of course, eventually. Everything he had done was ruined eventually...except Susan. Harriet had gone from his life...and the end had started on Ibiza."
Moving through the search for Led, the novel takes readers through unpredictable twists and turns in plot that keep them guessing about Led's whereabouts until the final scene of the story. Greene reveals in Martyn's character a psychological depth that gives this book an unsurpassed literary quality.
