About the Author

Julian Symons is primarily remembered as a master of the art of crime writing. However, in his eighty-two years he produced an enormously varied body of work. Social and military history, biography, and criticism were all subjects he touched upon with remarkable success, and he held a distinguished reputation in each field. His novels were consistently highly individual and expertly crafted, raising him above other crime writers of his day. It is for this that he was awarded various prizes, and in 1982, named as Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America—an honor accorded to only three other English writers before him: Graham Greene, Eric Ambler, and Daphne Du Maurier. He succeeded Agatha Christie as the president of Britain’s Detection Club, a position he held from 1976 to 1985, and in 1990 he was awarded the Cartier Diamond Dagger from the British Crime Writers for his lifetime achievement in crime fiction. Symons died in 1994.

By Kevin Kaczmar on December 18, 2012
Format: Paperback
The opening chapters of this expert mystery novel immediately remind one of John O'Hara's Appointment in Samarra: an unpleasant, mildly violent encounter at a neighbor's party leads inexorably, mystifyingly, to the downward spiral of the protagonist. In this case, the protagonist is one Solomon Grundy, a rather boorish advertising man. Soon, Grundy finds himself at odds with his wife and neighbors, and is eventually accused of a murder. Author Symons weaves character insights, social commentary, police investigation, and Grundy's trial into a literate, entertaining page-turner. Particulary amusing is the description of Grundy's neighborhood, an affluent suburban community called The Dell, whose very "progressive" inhabitants felt that "they were on the whole more intelligent, liberal and humane than the majority of their fellow citizens." Published in 1964, and set in England, The End of Solomon Grundy is highly recommended.

A mystery filled with "models", Solomon Grundy, and Inspector Manners! The characters are extremely well-developed and the mystery is a little strange. The ending is not happy. The book, however, is very well written, yet has a bit too much unexplained psychology to be a cozy.
