g[x_] := (Abs[#1^3/(1 + #1)] & )[E^x];

Block[{$DisplayFunction = Identity},
    p1 = Plot3D[g[R + I*t], {R, -(1/2), 1}, {t, 0, 2*Pi},
       ViewPoint -> {-1.3, 1, 1}, Mesh -> False, PlotPoints -> 64,
       Ticks -> {Automatic, Table[(k*Pi)/2, {k, 0, 4}], Automatic},
       PlotRange -> {0, 12}];
    p2 = ParametricPlot3D[{r, Pi, g[r + I*Pi]}, {r, -(1/2), 1}];
];

Show[p1, p2];

Should give a first impression where your function has its maximum magnitude.
