Sylvester Hoogmoed schetst aan de hand van oude brieven en politierapporten het leven van deze 'prachtige avonturierster' - zoals een Australische krant haar destijds noemde. Na de Russische Revolutie belandde ze through nogal wat omzwervingen in Egypte. Vervolgens frequenteerde ze de duurste lodges aan de Côte d'Azur en in Parijs, een spoor van openstaande rekeningen en ongedekte cheques achter zich latend. Na Frankrijk te zijn uitgezet, zette ze haar leven op grootse voet voort in België en Zwitserland, gesteund door de uitstekende connecties die ze had in de hoogste kringen en vooral door haar onverwoestbare flair.
