Reviews

A 2019 Goodreads Choice Awards Finalist

"Enjoyably ludicrous."--Politico

"If you're pining for the previous administration and craving an escapist summer read, Andrew Shaffer has the cure for what ails you."--Los Angeles Times

"This spirited, cheeky tale is everything you want from the Obama Biden Mystery series."--B&N Reads

"Sequels are often notoriously disappointing. How lucky, then, that Hope Rides Again isn't."--The Anniston Star

"If you're looking for something enjoyable and slight out there, this is definitely a book to try."--Yakima Herald-Republic

"Like its predecessor...[Hope Rides Again] is ridiculously insane and inventive."--BookTrib

"Many of the politically aware may soon have nostalgic fondness for humor like this."--LEO Weekly

"The game is afoot for Joe and Barry. This is fun, escapist fiction with enough details...to stay grounded in a kind of reality."--Booklist

"Once again, Shaffer convincingly portrays his unusual leads as action heroes."--Publishers Weekly

"Another action-packed mystery rife with close calls."--Shelf Awareness for Readers

"If you want to take a break from the nonstop coverage of all the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, including Joe Biden, let us recommend a crime thriller that stars...Joe Biden."--Clearing Out the Clutter

Praise for Hope Never Dies:
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, β˜…β˜…β˜… 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
