NRJacques Vallee was kind enough to provide a foreword for David Booher’s new book, No Return: The Gerry Irwin Story, UFO Abduction or Covert Operation?  In it, Vallee writes: “I believe two major themes stand out from the insights we can derive from David Booher’s work: First, the virtue of a patient, long-term perspective on cases that seemed forever lost in amnesia or hidden in secrecy; and second, the critical need for an intelligent alternative to the shoddy, pop psychology of hypnosis that has come to masquerade for ‘research’ in numerous reports of UFO abduction.” That idea is echoed by Ron Westrum, Professor Emeritus of Sociology, Eastern Michigan University, who calls this book “a model of a competent UFO close encounter investigation.” But it’s also more than that, as Nick Redfern notes in his review on Mysterious Universe: “Booher has written an absorbing, unbiased and genuinely fascinating story. It’s Booher’s own, personal search for the truth of a young man whose life was forever changed on a dark night back in the fifties. You should read this book.” Jerome Clark, in his review in Fortean Times, agrees: “No Return is admirable work, clearing up – to the limited extent possible – a curious case from the early UFO age, among the first to hint that even higher strangeness was lurking just over the horizon.”

NR“A terrific job of research…a marvelously constructed story…” says Whitley Strieber about the new book by David Booher of Wisconsin:  No Return: The Gerry Irwin Story, UFO Abduction or Covert Operation?  And rightfully so. David Booher has conducted a model UFO investigation into a long forgotten and neglected mysterious encounter, the true story of Nike Missile base technician Gerry Irwin. After stopping to investigate the crash of a blazing object, Private Irwin is found unconscious a day later in a field in Utah. What had happened to Irwin? Was he abducted by aliens? Or was he a pawn in a covert intelligence operation? A new investigation launched by Booher beginning in 2013 attempts to answer these and other questions, revealing along the way the ordeal of a man whose mind was ravaged by a confrontation with the unknown.
