Review

An Official Summer Read of Publishers Weekly and The Interrobang
A 2018 Goodreads Choice Award Finalist

"[Hope Never Dies is] a roughly 300-page work of political fanfiction, an escapist fantasy that will likely appeal to liberals pining for the previous administration, longing for the Obama-Biden team to emerge from political retirement as action heroes. But it's also at times a surprisingly earnest story about estranged friends who are reunited under strange circumstances."--Alexandra Alter, New York Times

"It's a giddy premise, a bit of Resistance wish-fulfillment for those who'd like to see Biden and Obama trading one-liners and cracking skulls."--New Yorker

"While readers are sure to get a kick out of the codenames and inside jokes used playfully throughout, Hope Never Dies is an intriguing saga that doesn't sacrifice momentum for winks and nods."--Entertainment Weekly

"It's easy to imagine that if these fist-bumping brothers were ever to become a modern Sherlock and Watson, the world might be a better, more interesting place."--USA Today, ★★★ out of four

"Obama and Biden are the ultimate crime-fighting team in Hope Never Dies."--Washington Post

"An ambitious and completely successful novel."--Booklist

"Deeply weird and very funny."--The Wall Street Journal

"Step aside Holmes and Watson; back off Poirot and Hastings. A new pair of amateur sleuths are hitting town this month: Barack Obama and Joe Biden."--The Guardian (UK)

"Shaffer has sublimated liberal grief, nostalgia, and fantasy into a sort of allegorical potboiler."--Slate

"A novel nostalgic for a feel-good moment in US politics--one that now seems far in the past."--Quartz

"Hope Never Dies is the lighthearted antidote for our tense political times, the escapist summer book we all need. Once you read it, you'll want more."--Brooklyn Rail

"[Hope Never Dies] is a fun lark, and the world could use more of that these days."--Florida Times-Union

"Hope Never Dies has humor and heart as well as plenty of adventure [and] surprisingly nuanced and tender takes on aging, masculinity, jealousy, and life after eight years in power."--Santa Fe New Mexican

"[An] entertaining, offbeat whodunit...Fans of Carl Hiaasen's comic crime novels will have fun."--Publishers Weekly

"The cool, cerebral ex-POTUS is a reasonable stand-in for Sherlock Holmes, and his ex-VPOTUS, by turns appealingly modest and laughably self-satisfied, is in some ways a better Watson than the good doctor himself."--Kirkus

"The beats of dialogue, the in-jokes, and the quips...make the book an entertaining light read."--Lexington Herald-Leader

"Probably the most unlikely pair of detectives I have ever seen."--Rincey Abraham, Book Riot --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Book Description

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. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
