Anything written by Iris Johansen.  She has a series about a forensic sculptor, Eve Duncan and her search for the remains of her daughter who was murdered.  They are edge of your seat suspense.

Being an english lit teacher, I love all the old favs, The Crucible, Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, etc.
