"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. Greta Helsing 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. Although barely making ends meet, this is just the quiet, supernatural-adjacent life Greta's been groomed for since childhood. 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"-- Provided by publisher.

Shaw's endearing and unconventional characters inhabit a thoroughly-imagined, secretly supernatural London that is still well-researched and believable. Her writing is fun and smart, and the mystery plot of Strange Practice is a quick-moving joy to follow. One of my favorite reads of 2017.

Book was different, creative, and had dark humor. Part Sherlock Holmes and Adams Family. I enjoyed reading this and look forward to the second book.
