I'm afraid you're doomed to disappointment if you want the Anita Blake
series to match.  Even when it comes out in paperback, the new cover design
is very distinctive and very different than the rest of the series.  They'll
be the same size, but the look has definitely changed.  It looks like a
mainstream fiction cover until you read the copy.
