About The Author
Richard Dowling was born in 1846 in Ireland and made his living as a ship-broker's clerk and writer for Dublin newspaper 'The Nation'. He moved to London to work as a journalist and struggled to be regarded as a serious literary writer. Evil Sisters was originally published in 1880. He died eight years later.

The Weird Sisters - Plot Summary
The Evil Sisters is a powerful novel, part paranormal mystery, part romance and an altogether gripping account of Henry Walter "Wat" Grey's dance with evil.
Grey found crime an easier burden than expected. In place of pure dread, he now dreaded only disclosure. 'Wat', as the town leaders knew him, was owner of the Daneford Bank and he was anxious to retain the legacy he'd inherited. After all, Wat reasoned, it was not his fault the bank was struggling in a difficult economic climate. Had he not practically been forced to dip into client funds? After Wat's first indiscretion, it seemed only sensible to go deeper.
But fate intervened as Wat dipped his plump fingers into the fortunes of his richest client, an aging baronet. Far from being discovered, however, Wat was asked to become executor of the baronet's will. The estate would be left to his client's heir, the lovely young Maud, upon her 22nd birthday. Until then, Wat would control her fortune. For the first time in years, Wat Grey relaxed.
It had been a difficult period - at work and at home. Wat had married and bought the town's old Manor House, steeped in myth and superstition. Neighbours gossiped that the house exercised an evil influence over those who fell under the shadow of its displeasure. No family had lived there for generations. But Wat Grey was, first and foremost, a banker. The Manor House was a bargain. He bought it for a song.
Wat insisted on hosting merry parties at the Manor House when they moved in. His wife, however, became increasingly secluded and withdrawn. No ladies were invited to dinner; no ladies stayed for twenty-four hours; and, beyond a few afternoon callers, no ladies visited at all. With difficulties at the bank and little solace at home, Wat began to despise his wife and her increasingly eccentric ways.
All of his problems would be resolved, Wat decided, if only he were a bachelor. What then? Wat contemplated until the answer became obvious: he would marry the lovely young Maud, heir to the baronet's fortune, and in one stroke wipe out the history of his crimes and begin life anew. And with that revelation, Wat Grey stopped relying on fate to decide his future, and decided to take matters into his own hands.
