Review: The Benson ( Experiment in Terror #2.5 ) by Karina Halle

The Benson by Karina Halle

An Experiment in Terror Novella (#2.5).

This short story/novella sees amateur Youtube ghost-hunters, Perry Palomino and Dex Foray, investigating the real-life hauntings of Portland's infamous Benson Hotel. It occurs between books #2 (Red Fox) and #3 (Dead Sky Morning) and is the perfect primer for anyone interested in the EIT series.




This is a 33 pages short story featuring Dex and Perry at The Benson Hotel. According to Dex, the Wikipedia stated that Benson Hotel is having 'shitload' of ghosts around. Good source, Dex!

The Benson Hotel
The night shift manager, Pam, told them about this ghost, Parker, who hang himself in the laundry room. Later on, with some sleuthing by Perry, which include climbing up the vent because Dex has short man syndrome, she came across (Spoiler alert!) Parker's ghost lover, May. Perry got into her host mode and interview May and found out that Parker carried a checkbook that serves as his diary. After Perry manage to discover the checkbook and pass to the authority, Pam said that the Benson Hotel had ceased being haunted.

Again, Perry and Dex team had make their little contribution to the society.

Rating 4/5
