The book has some fascinating insights into various paranormal happenings, particularly after nearly drowning when spending three days lost at sea following his plane catching fire during the Second World War. There are also the strange occurrences of the ghostly lady in the church and at another time the smell of burning and the apparent engulfment of himself and his wife by a dark blanket when lying in bed (the following day it transpired the man in whose room they were staying was burned to death, the previous night, in his aircraft).
The story of his mysterious car crash possibly being linked to a revenge vendetta from the Middle East and involving the SAS is equally fascinating.
I began to wonder though, how much of Peter's perspective on events could be seen as entirely accurate and objective. For example - he records a very lengthy dialogue with Janus, involving many complex and deep concepts, in great detail - would it be possible to remember so much from one meeting without a tape recorder, in such detail? When he returns some days later to quiz him (Janus) further, he's mysteriously disappeared - however we have no one else to corroborate this as only Peter was in attendance.
Then there's the issue of the car crash - it seems very far fetched that assassins would go to such lengths when their methods would appear very tricky to make work with any degree of reliability, surely there are simpler ways?Read more ›
Horsley claimed that this Janus character was able to read his mind and discuss in great detail the matter of flying saucers.
The chapter in which Horsley describes his encounter is long and is bogged down with references of the existence of a god and how we as a society are connected in our religious beliefs. It does go into details about other intelligent species that may inhabit our galaxy and the means of propulsion they may use to get here.
It is this chapter that has spawned many conspiracy theories about government cover ups involving UFOs. However, what UFO activists who have read this book fail to mention is that Horsley suffered what could have been described at post traumatic stress syndrome. He was shot down during the war and drifted in the English Channel for a few days before being rescued. He describes panic attacks and feelings of great anxiety in the months following which could be down to PTSS.
You have to read the entire book to know where he was coming from in regards to Janus. There is however one interesting fact that stands out, and that is the government did have an ongoing investigation into UFOs during the 1950s, dubbed the flying saucer working party.
