Moon Called UK cover

From the back cover of the USA paperback:
       Werewolves can be dangerous if you get in their way, but they'll leave you alone if you are careful.  They are very good at hiding their natures from the human population, but I'm not human.  I know them when I meet them, and they know me, too.

       Mercy Thompson's sexy next-door neighbor is a werewolf.
       She's tinkering with a VW bus at her mechanic shop that happens to belong to a vampire.
       But then, Mercy Thompson is not exactly normal herself...and her connection to the world of things that go bump in the night is about to get her into a whole lot of trouble.
