The country was crumbling in slow motion being dismantled and sold off under our noses in real time Chicago is very much is a real character with revealing its many tragic realities to those that may be unfamiliar with them While having such tough issues as systemic poverty racism and corruption being a plot point in a humorous tale it never felt that the city and its people were being mocked Being from the area I found this second installment even engaging than the first Only one minor irritation United doesn’t fly out of Midway Frontier Porter Delta and Southwest are the big ones So Biden couldn’t have been dropped off at the United gate to slog over to Delta Thanks to Netgalley and uirk Books for the ARC

Andrew Shaffer ↠ Hope Rides Again Mobi

Bama has invited him to meet a wealthy benefactor whose endorsement could turn the tide for Joe if he decides to run for presidentThe two friends barely have time to catch up before another mystery lands in their laps Obama’s prized Blackberry is stolen When their number one suspect winds up full of lead on the South Side the police are content to wr Prior to giving a speech at a conference in Chicago former US President Barack Obama’s Blackberry goes missing  Determined to find it for his friend former VP Joe Biden takes to the streets of The Windy City to track down the missing phone It’s not long before Biden and Obama get than they bargained for and become drawn into a deadly gang warThe second book in Andrew Shaffer’s improbable bromantic crime fiction series featuring Obama and Biden as gumshoes is just as good as the first  It doesn’t hurt that once again the mystery is solid and Shaffer isn’t relying solely on the gimmicky premise to move copies  The two friends wind up chasing down leads and dodging cars on their uest to find out why the intern that nicked Barack’s phone is recovering from two gunshot wounds to the gutOnce again Shaffer’s writing is filled with snappy dialogue and laugh out loud moments there is a particular uip late in the book that nearly caused me to spit out a mouthful of coffee  Biden is painfully uncool and completely oblivious but he’s a good match for the charismatic Barack Obama as the two continue to gel together well as exaggerated caricatures of the originals  The two characters could easily play as leads in the type of Hollywood buddy cop blockbuster that was all the rage at the turn of the centuryFor a book series that has laid its foundation on two extremely popular political figures there isn’t a lot of politics in play here  While Shaffer does have Biden mulling over a potential run for office in 2020 the book takes place on St Patrick’s Day 2019 Biden would announce the following month the author refuses to have either character dig their heels in on political rhetoric  In fact I don’t think Trump’s name even comes up once during the brisk read sure he’s alluded to but there are no direct shots at him  I think this is for the best really  There’s already too much Trump in my day to day life and I don’t even live in the USIf you are a fan of the original it’s worth picking up the seuel  I’m not sure you need to have read the first one but it helps to set the tone of the series  Joe Biden may not be looking too hot in the Democratic primaries but he’s on point in this whodunit action story

Hope Rides AgainIte it off as just another gangland shooting But Joe and Obama smell a ratSet against the backdrop of a raucous city on St Patrick’s Day Joe and Obama race to find the shooter only to uncover a vast conspiracy that goes deeper than the waters of Lake Michigan which is exactly where they’ll spend the rest of their retirement if they’re not careful As the ridiculousness of the 2020 election season kicks into gear it’s apparent that we have not learned from our past mistakes Case in point the Democratic nominees at last count I believe there were 25 a mixed bag of leftists and loonies woefully unaware of their mirror image similarity to the Republican candidates in 2015 Things are shaping up to be of the same ol’ same ol’ Democrat styleLeading the pack of liberal has beens never wases and wanna bes is of course the former Vice President Joe Biden who at 76 is strangely enough the current front runner In July 2019 Almost a year and a half before the electionNeedless to say I’ve been staying away from most news feeds these days Believe me it pains me as a recovering news and political junkie to remain so uninformed and aloof to this Washington DC dog and pony show but it’s for my own good My blood pressure thanks me and my family thanks me too I’m less stressed because I frankly don’t give a shit about these candidates mainly because it’s way too early to give a shit about themWhile I have nothing against Biden I do hope that Biden ends up dropping out and giving his endorsement to some new blood because Biden represents the same old Old Guard that a lot of voters fought against in 2016 resulting in the election of an orange asshole Just say it ain’t so Joe Let someone younger smarter and appealing to the millenial voting demographic take on the Drumpfster In the end and deep down Joe you know you don’t really have a chanceI could be wrong of course I was wrong in 2015 along with almost everyone else in the world in thinking that there was no chance in Hell that a TV game show host with a fake bake and an ungodly golden toupee would ever become president That was fucking weirdWho knows? Biden may surprise meIn the meantime I’ll stick to fictional representations of Biden The fictional Joe Biden is a lot entertaining anyway especially when partnered with his fictional BFF and bromantic partner in stopping crime Barack ObamaAndrew Shaffer a competent writer with an odd sense of humor published “Hope Never Dies” in 2017 a murder mystery featuring a bored retired Biden who decides to play detective after an Amtrak engineer he once knew dies under mysterious circumstances In that book he reunites with Obama and tackles the opioid epidemic as well as his own inner demons mainly pertaining to jealousy of Bradley Cooper who seems to be spending a lot of time with the Obamas lately“Hope Rides Again” is the latest “Obama Biden Mystery” book two in a series that could potentially become as popular as the Hardy BoysIn this book Biden is in Chicago visiting his BFF during an economic forum Bored out of his gourd Biden slips away to help find Obama’s Blackberry which was stolen from the green room Biden has his suspicions about who the thief is and his search leads him to the trainyards where he inadvertently gets involved in an attempted murderBiden with the help of Obama and Obama’s trusted Secret Service agent Steve encounters crooked cops gun runners and Mayor Rahm Emanuel These books are fun than good Shaffer does a decent job of keeping the politics pretty light but he does manage to interject some relevant social commentary Still this book is played for laughs nothing Diplomatic attempt at riling support for Biden or opportunity missed? I’ll let you decidePersonally I enjoyed it although it probably doesn’t change my views about Biden or the current state of the Democratic party
