More About the Author

Rob Loughran began his life as a small child.
Now he's a writer and like most writers you've never heard of he has a fulltime job and a family.
But nothing matters to him quite as much as writing.
Rob has written and published two collections of short stories; mystery, young adult, and science fiction novels; three books on writing; 11 jokebooks; 200+ articles, and several screenplays. He teaches creative writing and when asked about how to become a writer he always quotes William Goldman, "There are no rules to writing, but if there were, caring would be right up there. Or, as we intellectuals are fond of saying, you had better give a shit."

Tantric Zoo begins in 1987 at Tantricity Hill with four very different couples in different stages of their lives. Altair and his wife Apple run Tantricity Hill. The other three couples are Arnold and Missy, Debra and Devon, and Helena and Blake. Each couple has their own reason for visiting Tantricity Hill. Tantricity Hill is a retreat, focusing on sex therapy and allowing campers to reconnect with themselves as well as their significant others. During their time, they each explore their minds, bodies, and sexuality. They are able to try new things without distractions. The first half of the book, we get to know each character. We find out who they are, why they are there and what they hope to find and explore.

During a drug filled orgy in the dark, one camper takes advantage and kills another. Later in the book, it will be revealed as to why this person killed. As a group, they decide to bury the body. They dig the grave together, wrap the body, and bury it. As you can imagine, they are left in shock and full of guilt.

About halfway through the book, we meet the main character, Bud Warhol. It is now 2008, 21 years after they buried the body. The body is discovered. Bud is an anthropologist who works with the police to determine if it's a murder or historical burial site. We follow Bud on his quest to find the campers from that weekend.

This book was an interesting read from start to finish, it was unlike any book I have ever read. I was surprised Bud was able to find everyone involved with the murder so quickly. Bud was smart and resourceful for getting the information he needed to solve the case. I was also surprised at how open and honest the campers were when Bud came to question them.

I read High Steaks a couple of years ago, and have been anxiously awaiting his next hilarious thriller. He really knows how to create outrageously entertaining characters doing amazing things, and the result is not to be missed.

His off-kilter cast of characters are involved in endearing, shocking and uncomfortable situations at a sex camp for neurotic adults, some of whom actually deal with their problems while at the quirky, New Age Mendocino County retreat called, Tantricity Hill. You can't imagine what happens next, and that doesn't even include Bud Warhol finding the body!

As they say, "It's a gas, man!"

It's not voyeurism, it's realism good. From tantra to karma, 20 years later, a crime is unearthed, and you'll feel compassion for the criminal, thinking you may have done the same. Intelligent plot, not too boring or too far fetched. Bud Warhol is a very likable character, and so are all the other participants of this mystery.

Rollicking Rob Loughran has created a wild and bawdy tale of murder. This time his mild-mannered sleuth, cultural anthropologist, Bud Warhol, explores the long decayed remains of body somehow connected to a Mendocino sex retreat. Always entertaining, Rob delivers up a host of crazy characters in what may be the world's first tantric mystery. Check it out.

Author starts out with the murder right away and then doubles back for the first half of the book with a narrative of the days leading up to the murder which took place 20 years in the past.

You are halfway through the book before he sets up the discovery of the body and the investigation by a forensic anthropologist. The investigation is pretty low key.

Not a lot compelling about the book. Kind of quirky. The writing itself is not bad and if you can get past the story layout the book is not a bad read. Not humorous, not fast paced and not terribly memorable characters but still not a bad read.

A college Freshman's idea of "dirty books", with silly, vapid, sex sexuality and experimenting through the first 55%. The last 45% is a well written, fun, interesting, and satisfying conclusion. I have to say, I wish the characters appeared in other stories, because I really enjoyed this book and the way the author spun it out. If you don't blush while reading it, you should! That being said, I wish there were others in the series. Frankly, this is a good book!

I finished this book while the kids were in school so it was a killer of daily chores but worth it. Good characters, good plot and a nice twist. Enjoyed it.
