Who was the real Bolitho Blane? Who stands behind the character of the murder mystery "Murder off Miami", 1936, from Dennis Wheatley? Was there a living match, was Bolitho Blane really alive? There are strong hints backing up that idea. And there is a connection to Robert Brandy which is much more than quite accidentally. For Example the photo with the grand-parents of Robert Brandy together with Bolitho Blane. The grand-parents themselfs have declared that this photo is authentic. Robert Brandy walked the footsteps of Bolitho Blane in many places on this earth without even knowing it: He was in Las Vegas and Miami, in Cologne and Vera Cruz, in Brookland and at the Nürburgring... and he suddenly remembered details he had never before seen. Brandy met companions of Bolitho Blane, for example in an old bar in Vera Cruz, and they were for him like old fellas even he had never seen them before. From those travels Robert Brandy brought home many keep-sakes from Bolitho Blane and he transformed those to precious pieces of art. Pieces that point towards a "different" life, a "new" life, a life after death and before birth...
