That constitutional and political nightmare so intrigued Steven J. Kirsch, a civil attorney in St. Paul, Minn., that he began writing a novel about it in 1980. Little did Kirsch suspect that Indiana Sen.

The book was released, unheralded, several weeks before the Oct. 13 presidential debate in which the 20th Amendment was an issue. That's the amendment dealing with who becomes President on Inauguration Day should the President-elect be incapacitated/ailing/absent. With the media buzzing about the issue, and Dan Quayle hovering as the Republican veep candidate, "Oath of Office"--about the kidnaping of the President-elect--suddenly became a hot paperback novel. And now, Hollywood's come calling.
