Those who’d rather read about an ex-president than read something by a recent commander-in-chief are in luck.

Andrew Shaffer’s new book, Hope Never Dies, pulls Barack Obama out of retirement and plops him into the world of sleuthing, thanks to a nudge from his former second-in-command.

Shaffer told The Guardian that the sight of Joe Biden sporting aviator shades was his creative inspiration.

“I wondered what was going on in his head. What if he was narrating a thriller, starring himself and the president?” he said.

“When the Obama/Biden bromance memes went around the internet last year, I dusted off the idea and started writing Hope Never Dies.”

Obama and Biden have yet to publicly comment on the book, for which a sequel is already being planned.
