Andrew Shaffer is back with Hope Rides Again, starring your favorite detective duo Barack Obama and Joseph R. Biden. Obama loses his cell phone, Biden tries to do some sleuthing. There is an attempted kidnapping (or two), and Biden comes off as trying to work out lines for his campaign speeches, which is probably done on purpose, because this is a book that exists solely because we can’t let go of Obama and Biden as the heroes we need in, this, our darkest hour.
Or, it’s just a really good joke that warrants another novel. Either way, we’re down with it. Or, rather, we’re in the saddle with it. Riding again.

We realized we should have posted this on National Ice Cream Day in honor of Biden’s taste for the frozen delight. Oh well! At least it’s still National Ice Cream Month. Treat yourself at A Good Book and other independent bookstores.
