So far (I'm 50 pages in), an amusing yarn about a 3 member English theatrical troupe in the 1660's embroiled in a confidence game to hustle a fortune. To do so they must teach the free-spirited young girl in their group to impersonate an heiress who's been held hostage for years by Barbary Pilots.
A pleasant, easy read.
If you can get past the considerable racism (the setting is the Jim Crow Deep South; the story's told in first person), it's a creepy swamp voodoo tale comparable in its eerieness to many of the darker Conan stories. "The Pool of the Black One" comes to mind. I enjoyed it, but you may not if you can't stand casual use of the "N" word.
