William Rotsler (1926-97) 1st published novel "Patron of the Arts" (1974) combines two story lines; the search for lost love and a Martian adventure. The Mars adventure was half enjoyable, the lost love was in many respects a hollow bore.
The story centers on the hero: a very wealthy hedonist in a future racked by food riots and crushing overpopulation. The hero acquires art - in this context an electronic object that renders representations life-like. His wife is "captured" in a painting and along with the artist disappears. For solace he runs off to Mars incognito only to be made the subject of an murder attempt. A Martian space-warp reunites [him] with his first love for an unbelievably brainless conclusion.
