    Hi teechr, my reply as below:
    "art of love spell" is something like black magic spells.
    Charlie Chan is not the name of a person. It's a black magic art.
    I've changed the Charlie Chan to "Dark Art".

    I have rewrite again and please review the revised summary as stated below.

    Thank you.
