Perry and Dex are ghost hunters and these series are hunting ME. Recently, I have been constantly thinking about characters and about what is happenning with them in these books. I like how "relationship" between Perry and Dex is progressing and I love them both more and more with every single word I read about them.

I am not going to write long review. I am just going to say that I love Karina Halle's style of writing and I immediately need more of Dex and Perry so I am on to next book.

And a little warning, Benson is short but soo ghostly scary... It was perfect!

The Benson is a short little side trip for Perry and Dex to a haunted hotel in Portland, Oregon for their internet show, Experiment in Terror. Perry solves a decades old mystery with the help of the hotel's resident ghosts! It's a wonderful little side story into the EIT series that everyone who's a fan should read!

Even though it’s a shorty, I’m always excited to go on a paranormal adventure with Perry and Dex; and THE BENSON (Experiment in Terror #2.5) does not disappoint. In this little novella, our fearsome two checkout a well known “haunted” hotel in Portland and quickly find themselves in a tight spot. And even though this is a quick read, I can assure you there is no shortage of personality, chemistry and of course nail biting thrills that we have come to expect from this addicting series. THE BENSON is truly a great little read and at the cost of… oh a FREE… that’s right free, how could you not check out this little gem.

Review by: Megan Caffery on Dec. 08, 2011 :
Ms. Halle has given us yet another installment in the Experiment in Terror series where we see resident ghosthunters Dex and Perry doing what they do best---this time, they're in the haunted hotel known as The Benson. Even though it's a short one, readers are still treated to more of the adventures of this duo, whose ever-present sexual tension never seems to diminish. What more could you want?

Take a few minutes out of your day and treat yourself to this fast-paced novella. Then go buy the rest of the books, if you haven't already. You won't be disappointed.

Review by: Rachel Sharp on Dec. 08, 2011 :
A delicious short story from Karina Halle that follows Perry and Dex (fast becoming my favourite literary will they/won't they couple) as they visit a haunted hotel in Portland. This book only whetted my appetite for the next in the Experiment in Terror series. It was short, sweet and perfectly formed. If you want to see what the fuss is about these books, this would be a good place to start.
