I personally don't like many modern werewolf novels because they go the route Anne Rice did with vampires and usually present the werewolf in a fantasy setting instead of horror. For books that retain the horror element, check out Nightwalker by a guy whose name I forget, Mercheston by David Holland, and Animals by splatterpuck duo Skipp and Spector.
Unfortunately there is no literary equivelant of Dracula for the werewolf, but the closest would be Guy Endore's novel from the twenties, The Werewolf of Paris. It's well worth seeking out, and pretty much introduces the all the lore we take for granted. He was also an accomplished screenwriter, helming Lugosi's Mark Of The Vampire and the great Peter Lorre movie Mad Love among others.
Hope that helps.

BRIAN CAMPBELL- Werewolf: The Apocalypse

Definitely The Wolf's Hour by McCammon. A werewolf spy fighting Nazi's. Good stuff.
I'm told the Gary Brandner Howling novels are worth a look too.

I find it quite strange that there is no quintessential werewolf novel like there is for Dracula (Bram Stoker). I know there are good books about werewolfs around but nothing so well-known or reveered as Dracula's equivalent.
The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter has three werewolf stories in it, they were later adapted into the screenplay for The Company of Wolves by Neil Jordan. I can't guarantee you'll like the authors style, people either seem to adore or loathe it, but you could check it out.

Angela Carter rocks, as did Neil's film version. Her writing kinda reminds me of Neil Gaiman.
