Hope Never Dies – Book Review

Author: Andrew Shaffer

Publisher: Quirk Books

Format: Kindle e-book

Pages: 304

Published: July 10, 2018


This mystery thriller reunites Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama for a political mashup full of suspense, intrigue, and laugh out loud bromance.

Vice President Joe Biden is fresh out of the Obama White House and feeling adrift when his favorite railroad conductor dies in a suspicious accident, leaving behind an ailing wife and a trail of clues. To unravel the mystery, “Amtrak Joe” re-teams with the only man he’s ever fully trusted—the 44th president of the United States. Together they’ll plumb the darkest corners of Delaware, traveling from cheap motels to biker bars and beyond, as they uncover the sinister forces advancing America’s opioid epidemic.

Part noir thriller and part bromance novel, Hope Never Dies is essentially the first published work of Obama/Biden fanfiction—and a cathartic read for anyone distressed by the current state of affairs.


The thing I loved most about this book that America found it’s own Sherlock and Watson in Obama and Biden. The ex- President and Vice President! That was so unprecedented.

The second thing that I liked was a smooth combination of real facts with fiction set-up.

Since I have read quite a few defective novels in English and in Bengali. This did not have that much of action or the suspense factor that would’ve improved this book.

But I just loved the detectives. I hope to read more in this series but with more thrilling factors.

Review: 3.8/5

P.S. I had received this e-ARC from Quirk Books through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
