In a family of extraordinary people, Charlie is just Charlie. He was an average or below student in school, never very athletic, never all that great with the women, just kinda average. All he ever wanted was his father to be proud of him. Trouble was his younger twin brother and sister, the simple fact that they were twins outdid him. His father looked at it as a two-for-one. Then there was the fact that they were just better at the family business than he was. After years of begging, Charlie is finally out in the field on Long Island. Problem is he doesn't have an exact location, he has to find it himself, and he is going to. All the while collect Census Information. Hunting the Hunter is what happens when Charlie finds what he is hunting, and it turns on that he wasn't suppose to find them in the first place, but he takes it on anyway on his own. Can he take it down or will he become the prey? Author +Collin Fairlie  gives the readers a short story that never quite comes out in black and white and tells you exactly what is going on, but only alludes to it, refers to it and gives innuendos.

Hunting the Hunter is a short story, easily read in one sitting, so this is a great plane ride book, or train book, vacation book. You never actually meet any of the family, just Charlie, you just know them from what he tells you and your opinions of them change as you learn more and more about them. Author +Collin Fairlie  does a wonderful job of writing a story that you understand what is going on, but at the same time he never actually comes out and says it in black and white, you have to read into what is being said, and that is part of what makes this book so fun. Some of the conversations have double even triple meanings and you will be giggling as you are reading. There is no sex and no graphic violence, so I have no problem recommending this book to teens and older. Definitely a must read.
