    I read so much that I get the characters mixed up and can't remember who wrote them.

    Eve Dallas - J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts
    Steven White's books
    Savage and Sherlock - can't remember who writes that one

    the list could go on and on if my memory was any better of if I was at home with all my books.

    Another classic mystery writer is Ed McBain. He has serial characters set in a fictional city (I think its New York) who are cops. Its a laugh out loud, who-dun-it series.

    Used to read Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys and also, all those Enid Blyton's stuff. Those were the good old times...

    The Jane Whitefield series by Thomas Perry is one of my favorites. I think Disappearing Act is the first one. Great action sequences, especially if you like to read about women kicking the crap out of people
    Everytime I read one of Thomas Perry's books, I feel like dumping the whole stay-at-home mom gig and becoming a hit man.

    Iíve really enjoyed all of Walter Mosleyís books. His Easy Rawlins stories are superb. The first in the series ďDevil in a Blue DressĒ is probably the best (A movie was made from this book starring Denzel Washington), but all of the books in the series are very good. Heís got a new protagonist named Fearless Jones and he has written two books about him. Iíve enjoyed both these books

    I am in love with Alex Delaware and Adam Dalgliesh.
    Will have to look for Stephen White as I have not heard of him.
