I cant translate in spanish "hustler faces".
May be " hustler" an adjetive and faces the noum?
The context:
"The guide's face was a grey screen, hustler faces moved across it" ( William Burroughs)
Thanks

    A hustler is someone who tries to get money from others, especially in an illicit or deceptive way. It can refer to gamblers (especially cheating ones), prostitutes, drug dealers. Do you have any more context?

    No sé si exista una traducción de este texto, pero aquí te pongo otra traducción:

    La cara del guia era una pantalla gris, diferentes rostros (diferentes caretas) de estafadores se alternaban en ella.

    Espera a ver otras opiniones. Saludos.
