Jack Spade Dream Detective Review

Jack Spade: Dream Detective

by Carl A. Chase 

James Harper has an unusual problem. Whenever he falls asleep, he dreams that he is a hard-nosed private investigator named Jack Spade with an office in San Francisco, and he has been transported back in time—from the 1980s to the 1940s. Spade and his trusted partner, Joe Sawyer, must find Lauren Jefferson, a beautiful young socialite who has gone missing—but Lauren has a deep, dark secret. 

Jake Spade will stop at nothing to solve his case in this whirlwind adventure of suspense, blackmail, and intrigue.


James is a down and out private investigator. He doesn’t have much business to keep him busy so basically he sleeps at his desk all day. He dreams that he is a successful P.I. named Jack Spade, who has a case of locating a beautiful woman who doesn’t want to be found. No matter where James goes, he falls asleep and picks up where he left off in his Jack Spade dream.

I like the idea of a story within a story. This was a fun read trying to solve the case. Of course, like Spade, I didn’t know who to trust. And I wondered if James would be getting a similar case because I felt he needed more depth to his character, and more storyline. But my assessment seems off after reading the last paragraph.

White Felt Fedora Hat

White Felt Gangster Hat - Mobster Fedora Hat

This hat is so cool. I like the velvety softness of the felt. I was surprised how sturdy it is, and that it’s not as fragile as it looks. I have always loved black and white contrasting so it’s no wonder that I would like it.  The ribbon is very well attached with no chance of it falling off. I’m not usually a hat person, but I think I look chic. Just take a look.


It came in a factory sealed poly bag so there was no chance of it arriving dirty. Since it is one size fits most, it got passed around my family with everyone trying it on. It wasn’t as fashionable on them as it was on me though. (At least I thought so but I may be a bit biased.)
