**In later books the more supernatural/fantastical elements tend to be relegated to the short stories and novelas between the main novels. Someone who hasn't bothered to track those down could be forgiven for thinking that the maybe magic stuff was all pretty much EarlyInstallmentWeirdness.

* BlackMarketProduce: Real meat and coffee are expensive luxuries that only the rich can afford. In the first novel of the series billionaire Roarke woos Dallas by giving her a present of genuine coffee from the Brazilian plantation he maintains at great expense for his own personal supply. It's so immeasurably superior to the vile sludge that usually passes for coffee (see BadToTheLastDrop) that Dallas's coffee becomes the envy of the entire Homicide division.

* {{Deconstruction}}: The setting can be seen as one of the idea of a social utopia, as discussed in the Dystopia entry below: Sure, guns may be banned, killing animals for meat is virtually unheard of, welfare is better than ever, and prostitution and certain recreational drugs are legalized and regulated, but people are still murdered by psychopaths, terrorists still blow up monuments, and there is still a dark, nasty underbelly to society where the forgotten and out-of-luck citizens waste away from the world, corrupt politicians still bend or skirt the rules Basically, everything is the same as it is now.

* BigBrotherInstinct: Roarke tends to harbor protective instincts toward Eve's female colleagues, though they're not particularly weak. This is probably due to his DeadLittleSister, below.

** Roarke himself finds himself in these situations as well, though not as often as Eve. Most of the nightmares tend to occur when a case reminds him of (or directly involves) his past or his father, though these dreams usually garner as dramatic a reaction as Eve's. The dreams that ''do'' get to him, however, are the ones that involve seeing Eve hurt or killed in front of him.
