In 1989, THE STORY OF KARMA was published and became another smashing success. The book describes the spiritual horror of a Mexican bandit, Emilio Valdez, who murdered five people and must "return" their innocent lives to God—or suffer in a hell. He atones for his sins by returning to earth five times and reliving the lives—and deaths—his victims. This book is an original literary experiment. Instead of five long chapters, the book is divided into the five consecutive lives of Emilio Valdez.
Benedikt is a phenomenal visual storyteller. The reader has an impression as if "seeing the movie"! - George Turner, Editor in Chief AMERICAN CINEMATOGRAPHER MAGAZINE
