Publisher's Summary

Meet Greta Helsing, doctor to the undead.

Dr. Greta Helsing has inherited the family's highly specialized and highly peculiar medical practice. She treats the undead for a host of ills - vocal strain in banshees, arthritis in barrow-wights, and entropy in mummies.

It's a quiet, supernatural-adjacent life until a sect of murderous monks emerges, killing human and undead Londoners alike. As terror takes hold of the city, Greta must use her unusual skills to stop the cult if she hopes to save her practice - and her life.

What the Critics Say

"In Vivian Shaw's Strange Practice, a charmingly unusual doctor and her charges keep the city of London from grave danger. In the process, they peel back the covers of familiar (and according to them, somewhat 'libelous') stories to find that reality - especially with the undead - is more poignant and complex than it seems at first glance. An excellent adventure." (Fran Wilde, award-winning author of Updraft, Cloudbound, and Horizon)

    "Someone who cares."

    Please Ms. Shaw, tell us a whole series is on it's way ! Would also like to hear that the two helping at the clinic have gotten a major raise.

    "Oh pls keep writing!"

    So many potential back stories to be told! Not overdone (by author or narrator), just pulled me into this other entrancing world, filled with characters I truly hope to meet again.

    "Why is there not already a sequel?!?!?"

    What will I listen to now that I will enjoy as much as I enjoyed this book? The narrator was perfect and the story very original
