An incredible time travel adventure based on historical events and conspiracy.
This book, like it’s prequel Bad Love Strikes, takes the phrase “getting into a book” to a whole new dimension as the author provides his readers with an excellent playlist to listen to, linked to the events in the book, wonderfully enhancing this exciting time travel adventure.
During the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt, the “White Hole Project” was conceived and built. This project is a time machine and it is housed in a top-secret deep underground bunker. Its location is adjacent to the K-25 project building, more commonly known as the Manhattan Project, the place where the world’s first nuclear bomb was built.
In Bad Love Strikes a teenage gang of the same name, discover the project and undergo a time travel mission to rescue Holocaust victims in 1944 Poland This story begins just after they have returned from their first adventure, and the gang is assembled at the White Hole Project to celebrate New Year’s Eve 1975. The music is playing, and none of them suspect that at the stroke of midnight the room would be plunged into darkness and they would be attacked by a Russian KGB agent intent on discovering the project’s secrets.
However, the agent is no match for the gang. But worryingly they realize that the incident raises the issue of possible infiltration into governmental secrets possibly going back as much as 30 years. So, they decide to go back in time to talk to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who conceived the White Hole Project, and they knew from their previous mission. When they arrive on April 12th, 1945 they receive a warm welcome from the president, at his cottage, the Little White House, adjacent to Warm Springs, Georgia.
At the meeting the gang give the president a little insight into future world events, but also discover that Russian, Chinese and Indian spies have infiltrated the project and he worries that the secrets are being stolen. President Roosevelt charges them with the task of defending the integrity and the future of not only the White Hole Project, but also top-secret Area 51 against all enemies both foreign and domestic, and gives them a new mission, code naming the undertaking the “Denver Project.”
To accomplish their mission, they must go back in time to June 1942, and deliver a note directly from the president to the trusted General Claire Chennault who commands the Flying Tigers in China. The president informs them that all the resources they need will be available to them, however, the venture entails a dangerous road trip across 1945 WWII America to Area 51, and incredibly the opportunity for the four members of the newly formed Panda Bear Flying Tigers to pilot P-40 Warhawks and take part in a truly out of this world assignment.
In conclusion: This new adventure of the Bad Love Gang is mind-blowing, the talented author takes his readers on an incredible rollercoaster of an adventure which intermingles true historical facts and incredible moments in the past, with conspiracy theories and science fiction. Not forgetting of course that throughout there’s a sprinkling of romance, heaps of comradeship, and that all- important patriotic duty, all carried out whilst maintaining the gang’s motto “Live dangerously, have fun, don’t die!”
