His most famous character, the supernatural French detective Dr. Jules de Grandin, investigated cases involving monsters, devil worshippers, serial killers, and spirits from beyond the grave, often set in the small town of Harrisonville, New Jersey. In de Grandin there are familiar shades of both Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot, and alongside his assistant, Dr. Samuel Trowbridge, de Grandin's knack for solving mysteries - and his outbursts of peculiar French-isms (grand Dieu!) - captivated for nearly three decades.
Collected for the first time in trade editions, The Complete Tales of Jules de Grandin presents all 93 published works featuring the supernatural detective. Presented in chronological order over five volumes, this is the definitive collection of an iconic pulp hero.

Good for the medium
If judged as a novella or even as serious pulp, it would grade lower. As it is merely a collection of cliche occult stories, the 3 stars are for the wide variety and colorful scenery. Overall, it is fun to listen to as a way to pass the time, but the characters don't evolve, they are entirely predictable, and the plots' arcs are transparent from the first paragraphs.

Such Fun !!
These stories, and Seabury Quinn, are new to me and I enjoyed listening to this so excellent volume. I intend to buy the hardbacks also, and understand that there will eventually be five volumes. Mr. Paul Woodson did an admirable job of suggesting Grandin's accent and voice s well as the rest of the characters. I would like to hear more of his readings.
