Hope Never Dies

Arack Obama code name Renegade Together they'll plumb the darkest depths of Delaware traveling from cheap motels to biker bars and beyond as they uncover the sinister forces advancing America's opioid epidemic. I think if you re going to write a murder mystery wherein the former president of the United States and his hetero lifemate VP solve a murder you ve gotta go big or go home I either want to be laughing my ass off or bowled over by just how accurate the characters are Alas neither was the case with this very tepid relatively well plotted mystery that paints Obama and Biden as a sort of old married couple on the outs Barack hasn t called since the end of their stint in the Whitehouse and Joe our narrator is too stubborn to reach out himself It isn t until a conductor on Joe s well loved Amtrack line dies under dubious circumstances that Barack appears to suggest the two may want to take a closer look at what s going on While the mystery itself isn t bad I actually didn t have a problem buying these two as detectives given the nature of the crime and the resources they d have access to etc it just didn t hold my interest I mean its the entire world s favorite bromance couple for gods sake Do something interesting with it The source material is literally endless The memes alone should have given author Andrew Shaffer one liners for pages and pagesThere are some attempts at witty reparte between Obama Biden and the reluctant secret service agent who d rather be protecting an active president but has to follow them everywhere and the occasional joke about the uselessness of trying to wear disguises so they can investigate things incognito but for the most part they just kind of drive around trying to figure out whats going on occasionally butting heads with various police officers and government agents Its boring which if you ll recall is always always worse than bad in my book At least bad gets my attentionThere s no reason for a mystery with this awesome of a title and this magnificent of a cover to be anything other than glorious and this justwasn t

Sense anyBut when his favorite Amtrak conductor dies in a suspicious accident Joe feels a familiar desire to serve and he leap into the role of amateur sleuth with a little help from his old friend President B. The 2016 Presidential Election has ended Former Vice President Joe Biden doesn t uite know what to do with himself As he watches his former boss Barack Obama vacationing with the likes of Richard Branson Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Hollywood superstar Bradley Cooper he feels discarded and hopeless All this changes when Obama arrives on Joe s doorstep one evening with the news of the death of a dear friend of Joe sHope Never Dies is a fun read with an interesting premise Hey I got an idea How about Biden and Obama team up to solve a murder When the story begins it doesn t appear to be anything deeper than a total bromance between the internet s two favorite political pals however there is actually a pretty solid mystery at the novel s core Shaffer kept me guessing right up until the end due to several sly red herrings thrown in to misdirect this readerI received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewI can t say I know much about Joe Biden so I m not sure if this characterization comes anywhere close to that of the former Vice President I m not sure if that even matters to be honest Biden is described as a broken down man struggling to come to grips with a directionless life Some of the similes and descriptions that Biden explores are surface level deep and downright groan worthy although I believe that s the point Above all else it s his incorruptible character that makes him the perfect fit for an amateur sleuthOn the other hand Obama is played like the ultimate bad ass dripping with swagger which is a far cry from the casual Dad jeans wearing forty fourth president we all remember That said he ends up being the perfect Yin to Biden s Yang To put it another way if Biden is Carlton than Obama is Will Smith Shaffer succeeds in writing some entertaining back and forth dialogue between the two even if I could never imagine them saying some of the things that come out of their mouthsI have to admit I really only asked for a copy of this book because the cover made me laugh When I finished it I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed it While I generally like my mystery novels dark and bleak it s nice to try something lighter once in a while Hope Never Dies is the literary euivalent to a fun buddy cop movie an ideal summer readCheck out my interview with Andrew
