The New York Times Best Seller
"[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
Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama team up in this high-stakes thriller that combines a mystery worthy of Watson and Holmes with the laugh-out-loud bromantic chemistry of Lethal Weapon’s Murtaugh and Riggs.
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, 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.

I picked this one up because of the cover, you have to admit that looks pretty cool. It makes you stop and wonder what this book is about. This is a mystery that features former Vice President Biden and President Obama. A railroad conductor dies and Biden is suspicious as it seems shady since the railroad conductor was close to retiring. He doesn't think his old friend would have committed suicide, leaving behind his wife and family. This book was hilarious. The antics between Biden and Obama, just fun. It was one of those fun, light mysteries, but what makes this one stand out is the fun characters. Biden was a good narrator, and Obama was pretty cool in the book. I was happy to see that the author is writing another one, I will have to for sure read that one when it comes out.
