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 fiction - and a cathartic read for anyone distressed by the current state of affairs.

Andrew Shaffer is the New York Times best-selling author of Fifty Shames of Earl Grey and other fiction and nonfiction titles. Shaffer is known for his humor and boundary-pushing writing, which he does with aplomb in Hope Never Dies: An Obama Biden Mystery. He lives in Lexington, KY.


“[Hope Never Dies is] 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.” — Alexandra Alter, New York Times

“A pro at parodies.”  — The Associated Press

"An entertaining, offbeat whodunit... Fans of Carl Hiaasen’s comic crime novels will have fun."  — Publisher's Weekly
