My list of favourite modern novelists has to include J. D. Robb and Eve Dallas.  Each story has a great theme the relationship between Eve and Rourke and the ongoing relationship growth and challenges she and they face.  The story always centers on her job and the inevitable  constant and ever changing humiliations humans invent to perpetrate upon one another, always with a sense of humour to offset the tragedy while displaying compassion for the family and friends affected by the tragedy.  You are always drawn into reading on in order to ascertain what quirkiness and madcap adventure is afoot.  What keeps her books fresh is the not knowing how she will solve the case.  The edginess is in the very few unsolved cases that haunt Eve Dallas still.
