Preventable Tragedies

The third book in the DI Helen Mirkin series, Preventable Tragedies, awaits the finishing touches of cover artist Assaf Shtilman to see the light of day. If all goes well, it should be out by August 15th, 2017 at the very latest.

Although each book in the series can be read as a stand-alone, readers interested in DI Helen Mirkin and her personal development may wish to read the books in the order written, so as to best follow her process. However the main story plot is unique for each installment in the series. Whereas the first book was set in a general hospital, and the second in an opera boot camp, events in Preventable Tragedies span three countries: Israel, Greece, and Portugal.


DI Helen Mirkin is called to assist a worldwide inquiry into the distribution and sale of counterfeit medication. Is it being used to fund terrorism, and if so, how? Mirkin and her colleagues follow up potential leads both in Israel and abroad, including in Greece and Portugal.

Meanwhile, a potential whistleblower in the nutritional supplement industry is murdered, while a medical outbreak at a leading hospital garners attention. Coincidence?

Through-out the investigation, Mirkin struggles with her personal life, as she seeks to raise a family of her own.
