Ever since the first part of this study of the Muricidae appeared in 2011, the second part of the series has been eagerly anticipated. Finally, after an eleven- year wait, it is now available. This book is superb , and like the first book, it is richly illustrated, and the information and the detailed descriptions of the shells make it a worthy companion to the earlier book. If you already own the first part of the series that covers the Muricinae will want to place your order for the new book without hesitation. It is just "that good."
