About this story Marcia writes:

"'Two Sisters' started life as a short story for a Halloween event at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Fellow author, Beth Foxwell, and I were each commissioned to write a tale which we would read to museum visitors on October 31st. There was only one rule: the story had to feature an object in the museum's extensive collection. Beth chose an Art Deco vase, as I recall, but after visiting the museum, I became fascinated by an enormous touch-screen virtual tour of the Marlborough Apartments, the rooms where the famous Cone sisters lived and where they managed to amass a huge collection of Impressionist art, including the largest collection of Matisses in the world. A Picasso hung in the bathroom over the tub! Can you imagine? When I discovered that the Marlborough Apartments had been turned into an assisted living facility in the late 1970s, the story practically wrote itself."

So here it is, a gentle little ghost story for your Halloween reading pleasure.

"Two Sisters" was first published in 2008 in Chesapeake Crimes 3, an anthology of 15 all-new mystery stories compiled and edited by New York Times best-selling author Donna Andrews with a foreword by Sujata Massey.

Meet the Author

Marcia Talley is the author of ALL THINGS UNDYING and eight previous mystery novels featuring survivor and sleuth, Hannah Ives. Hannah's tenth adventure, A QUIET GRAVE, will be published in the summer of 2011 by Severn House.

Marcia Talley's Agatha and Anthony award-winning short stories have appeared in more than a dozen collections, including anthologies edited by New York Times best-selling authors Lawrence Block, Elizabeth George, Laura Lippman, and Anne Perry. They have been selected for inclusion in "The World's Finest Mystery and Crime Stories" and "The Deadly Bride and 21 of the Year's Finest Crime and Mystery Stories," edited by Ed Gorman and Martin H. Greenberg.

"My mother was an avid mystery fan, and a charter subscriber to Ellery Queen's Mystery magazine, so mysteries were always around the house," Marcia told a Philadelphia newspaper. "I was also a great fan of that old television show, 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents' and am grateful that although it appeared on TV late on a Sunday night (a school night--gasp!) I was allowed to stay up to watch it . . . I think my fondness for quirky endings can be traced back directly to Mr. Hitchcock."

Marcia divides her time between Annapolis, Maryland and living aboard an antique sailboat in the Bahamas with a husband who loves to sail and a cat who doesn't.
