Hope Never Dies: An Obama/Biden Mystery

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.

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 fanfiction—and a cathartic read for anyone distressed by the current state of affairs.

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

"The Obama/Biden buddy-detective-story we never knew we needed." — advance NetGalley review

"I am physically angry that this is a work of fiction. If I'm ever murdered, please put Joe Biden on the case." — Beth Revis, New York Times best-selling author of Rebel Rising

"Probably the most unlikely pair of detectives I have ever seen." — Rincey Abraham, Book Riot

“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
