Andrew Shaffer is responsible for Hope Never Dies: An Obama Biden Mystery. That’s right: Joe Biden and Barack Obama as a crime-fighting duo. Obama graciously inhabits the Sherlock Holmes role in this crisp and chatty crime caper, while Biden shows Watson a thing or two about how the sidekick should steal the show. Sure, it’s all wish fulfillment, smothered with a heaping dose of earnest What-If?-ery, but come on, you can’t tell us you’re not delighted by the phrase “first book in a new series” that comes along with this title.
