Barack And Joe Solve A Murder Mystery

-

I ran across this novel a couple years ago, "Hope Never Dies". It was a fun read:

Barack And Joe Solve A Murder Mystery
August 4, 20185:33 PM ET
Heard on All Things Considered




If you missed the news on Monday, former President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden were spotted dining out at a Washington D.C. cafe, rekindling their Oval Office "bromance" over sandwiches and fennel salad.

But there's also word of another meeting between the two former running mates, in which they team up to [checks notes] solve a murder.

OK, fine, maybe that didn't happen. But it is the plot of a fun new book called Hope Never Dies: An Obama-Biden Mystery, by Andrew Shaffer. It begins with "Uncle Joe" Biden sitting at home when he receives an unexpected visitor.

"It's the dark, mysterious arrival of the former best friend," Shaffer says. "And the book is really about two people reconnecting after they've had a little bit of time apart."

I’m very familiar with the Amtrak station there and the neighborhood. There’s a second one I think the title is “Hope Rides Again” takes place in Chicago. I haven’t got it yet

it's called, "Murder on the Amtrak Express" instead of, "Hope Never Dies."

It's hilarious!
