A samurai places a curse on his enemy: whoever hurts his family will be maimed or die a horrible death. A curse on one family is a blessing spell to the other family. But are curses effective against people who don’t believe in them?

Deaf since birth, Anne Hansell is a third generation Japanese-American and distant relative to Mitsunari Ishida, who lost the Battle of Sekigahara to Tokugawa. During a visit to Japan, her Japanese family encouraged her to learn about her samurai heritage by reading Japanese history books, where she learned that some people believe a samurai’s curse could be very powerful. This prompted her to write “The Burning Police Car.”  She is now living with her husband, a New England gentleman, in Southern California.
