Frederic Brown - The Characters
Ed and Am Hunter
The Hunter and Hunter Detective Agency in Chicago consists of handsome, brash young Ed Hunter and his wily Uncle Am (Ambrose), most of whose life has been spent as a carnival pitchman. When no one seems interested in finding the murderer of his brother - Ed's father - Am leaves his job and comes to the Windy City, which he describes as a "fabulous clipjoint." Am is middle-aged, with the cheerful round face of a cherub (if a cherub were to wear a scraggly brown mustache}. His only known vice is an enthusiasm for poker that keeps him up to odd hours of the morning. His nephew, 18-year-old Ed Hunter, has plans for their detective agency-that will make it the biggest, best and most successful in the Middle West.
