Fresh off their mission to rescue Holocaust victims in 1944 Poland, the Bad Love Gang assemble at the White Hole Project to celebrate New Year’s Eve 1975. At the stroke of midnight, they are ambushed by a Russian KGB agent bent on stealing the secrets of the White Hole Project. Faced with telling the authorities or going it alone, the Bad Love Gang travels back in time to meet with President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) for his advice and direction.
FDR appoints the Bad Love Gang to protect the future integrity and security of not only the White Hole Project, but also America’s top-secret Area 51. To accomplish FDR’s directives, the Gang must undertake a dangerous road trip across 1945 WWII America from Warm Springs, Georgia to Area 51 in Nevada. Russian, Chinese, and Indian espionage forces stand in their path.
Their mission ends in June, 1942 WWII China, where at FDR’s mandate, the Bad Love Gang volunteer for the famous AVG Flying Tigers under General Claire Chennault. In the forests of southern China, they must protect the secrets of Area 51 and keep those secrets in America’s hands. Can they do it?
I was reading this insightful and encompassing book during a time of uncertainty in this world : the COVID 19 crisis. When ‘ normal life ‘ seemed to vanish in an instant, what was once considered routine became arduous and restricted ... incertitude crept in and began to take hold.
It reminded me that situations and assurances are ephemeral in a fragile world, where assumptions and fear may overshadow truth and logic, when mindfulness is important affirm stability and structure. I needed an escape; hope was on the horizon.
The recent “Bad Love Tigers“ book took me on a thrilling journey, Dr. Schewe masterfully intertwines the assurances of simpler times with the abstruse field of nuclear physics and time travel with all it’s assumptions, paradoxes and hypothetical possibilities ... it left me yearning for more.
As a practicing radiation oncologist for over 30 years, I’m familiar with the arcane world of nuclear interactions and their implications for past and future generations. Dr. Schewe takes these difficult concepts and makes them clear and accessible for the everyday reader. It’s an enthralling book that kept me spellbound and excited to turn the next page. Dr. Schewe also delivers an excellent historical panorama of past and current places that played and continue to represent some of our most cherished and impactful memories.
I relished the way foreboding situations were interlaced with the humorous realities of everyday life during our younger and ingenuous childhoods. The book is certain to entertain the young and the most die hard intellectual wishing to escape with the whim and humor only a master could execute. It’s a riveting story from a banner story-teller.

The Bad Love Gang is back with guns blazing to save the world. Their motto is “live dangerously, have fun – don’t die”, which sums up their crazy, time traveling adventures.
Amidst spies, assassins and aliens, the gang travels around the United States and China on their current mission. Bouncing from the 1970’s to the 1940’s BB, Browmar, Bucky, Waldo and Tator have the honor of meeting with President Roosevelt very shortly before his death. During this meeting they discuss the White Hole Project (time travel) and shock FDR by reintroducing him to Bucky, who was assumed dead the first time the White Hole Project was used.
With FDR paving the way for them and the rest of the Bad Love Gang as they travel to several key cities working undercover to complete their mission. One of the stops was personal for Bucky. He needs to see his parents as they were notified that he was missing in action and presumed dead. One of their destinations is the infamous Area 51 and a spot in China that observers claimed to see a space ship much like the one in the states. Arriving there in time to contact the aliens, will change the gang’s lives forever.
Schewe brings page turning action and drama from the first pages to the last. His characters are quirky and funny, cracking jokes amidst missions that will impact each of them as well as the world as we know it. It is fascinating to read the historical facts interwoven with the time traveling fictional characters. I was particularly interested in learning more about Allen Wright, a real-life hero that flew missions in China in the 1940’s. Yes, I did look him up and he was an amazing man. I love a work a fiction that takes this leap to further engage the reader and provide an opportunity to read more about the historical facts and figures mentioned along the way.
