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.
The next book in this series, AN EYE FOR MURDER is currently edited and scheduled to appear on Amazon shortly. It is the English version of THE 12th TEST TUBE, [A best-selling novel], but the plot has been relocated to Louisville, KY, where Martin Sherwood was the medical director of the Dept. of Ophthalmology at the University of Louisville between 1990 and 1994. THE LAZY EYE MURDER, the 3rd medical thriller is already finished too and will appear next year.
Another book is RIBBON OF DARKNESS, not a medial but a historical thriller/saga, about the KKK, which also takes place in Kentucky. There is also YELLOW RAIN, an apocalyptic screenplay about a biological terror attack over a crowded beach during a holiday. COMING SOON
"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."
