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 think the guilt from all those years ago just ate them up. Someone had to tell the truth about what happened. While they were all involved with the cover up, they were honest after the truth was told. After all these years, they came to terms about what they did and they were ready to face the consequences.
Tantric Zoo was a great read. Very different and very unique.

I have so many questions about this book. I couldn't get through the first 50 pages without putting it down a few times and asking myself "What in the world is going on?"
To be honest, Im not sure what was happening, where they were, and what was going to happen next.
I'm not to sure even who the main characters were. It skipped around to much and left me feeling blank. The dialogue of the characters was absent. I couldn’t connect with them.
I thought it would be an sexy, exotic short.. but maybe it was a little to far fetched for my tastes...
