The fun run that Andrew Shaffer has had with his debut “Obama Biden” Mystery, Hope Never Dies, gets to go again as he appears here for the new sequel, Hope Rides Again (Quirk). This time the action starts when Barack Obama’s prized Blackberry cell phone is stolen. All sorts of intrigue ensues, in most entertaining fashion. “While readers are sure to get a kick out of the codenames and inside jokes used playfully throughout, Hope Never Dies is an intriguing saga that doesn’t sacrifice momentum for winks and nods.”—Entertainment Weekly. “The game is afoot for Joe and Barry. This is fun, escapist fiction with enough details…to stay grounded in a kind of reality.”—Booklist.
