Lots of Neil Gaiman's books include this sort of thing, particularly American Gods. Also Ben Aaronovitch's Rivers of London series of books are good and include other characters in a contemporary setting.
If you like this sort of writing, I'd also recommend Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. A little different but a fantastic book.
