The first book in a contemporary fantasy series that introduces the fast-talking Greta Helsing, doctor to London's supernatural community.
Meet Greta Helsing, fast-talking doctor to the undead. Keeping the supernatural community not-alive and well in London has been her family's specialty for generations.
After inheriting a highly specialised - and highly peculiar - medical practice, Dr Helsing spends her days treating the undead for a host of ills: vocal strain in banshees, arthritis in barrow-wights and entropy in mummies. Although barely making ends meet, this is just the quiet, supernatural-adjacent life Greta's been preparing for since childhood.
But when a sect of murderous monks starts attacking Londoners, undead and human alike, and terror takes hold of the city, Greta must use all her unusual skills to keep her supernatural clients - and the rest of London - safe.
STRANGE PRACTICE is the start of an exciting contemporary fantasy series.
