I very much enjoy how Buckley uses the fiction genre to explore potential motives and circumstances that could have driven the decisions and behavior of historic persons. He does so in 'Red Hunter', as elsewhere, (e.g. Blackford Oakes series) in ways not intended to either expiate or lionize anyone (or group, movement, etc.), but to encourage thoughtful consideration of the possibilities-which are often much more complex than biographers can allow.

"From America's most celebrated conservative writer, William F. Buckley Jr., comes an engrossing and unexpected historical novel about one of the most controversial figures in American political history -- Senator Joe McCarthy." "In THE REDHUNTER, a wonderful blend of fact and fiction, Buckley tells the story of Harry Bontecou."
