"Vera was killed instantly when their car skidded out of control in a heavy snow storm on the GrossGlockner pass. Her lover - a real chancer, took the two suitcases and fled from the scene. So there the trail ceased for over twenty years - Vera dead, the jewels and the von Velden crown gone, the Count inconsolable in his grief and unable to look after the child. Marianne came to England to be brought up by Rose and John... she was a rebellious and difficult child...."
