Book Description
Onboard the Fidele, a steamboat floating down the Mississippi to New Orleans, a confidence man sets out to defraud his fellow passenger. In quick succession he assumes numerous guises from a legless beggar and a worldly businessman to a collector for charitable causes and a `cosmopolitan` gentleman, who simply swindles a barber out of the price of a shave. Making a very little from his hoaxes, the pleasure of trickery seems an end in itself for this slippery conman. Is he the Devil?
