Over My Dead Body 

by Martin Sherwood

Thrillers in the world of medicine 

Martin Sherwood 

Martin Sherwood is the pen name of Motti Sharir, M.D., Ph.D., a practicing ophthalmologist and glaucoma researcher. When not seeing patients, he writes thrillers and screenplays and plays the accordion. While still in medical school, he was a journalist and editor, and aired a radio program about folk music and poetry. During his professional career, he has authored numerous books and book chapters on glaucoma as well as more than fifty articles in peer-reviewed journals. He lives in a Tel Aviv suburb with his wife and three cats.



"Martin Sherwood has taken decades of experience as a physician and eye surgeon and placed them firmly in the realm of murder mystery/thrillers. In this, his first book in English translation, he unfolds the conflict of interests between pure science and the humanist demands of decency, morality and the saving of lives, all incorporated into a fascinating detective story with an unusual twist to the plot."
