Hello: in the following passage I'm not sure about the meaning of "take it from there":

["the great hunter" just received a phone call from his friend Charlie, who needs his help, and gave him a tip about somebody who's going to die very soon] "Charlie hung up, shaking like a leaf. Enough said. Let the great hunter take it from there. Please."

Thank you for your help.

    It's up to the "great hunter" to handle the problem now. He will (Charlie hopes) decide what is to be done next and do it.

    No, it's take it from there. It's certainly an idiom. As for the context, I can't copy the whole text of the phone call, that would break the copyright.
