Jolie Rouge: A Swashbuckling Tale of Adventure and Intrigue by Rick Ley

Excerpt from Page 257:

“It wasn’t so much a man but a ghastly fabrication of some sort of deranged circus carny dressed in a top hat, black tuxedo, and dark sunglasses. Cotton plugs protruded from his nose, and a smoldering cigar dangled from the corner of his mouth. Ashes were smeared across the black man’s face in such a way to suggest that he had no face at all, just a skull: this was the incarnate form of Baron Samedi.”
