The Canfield Decision book. This book is about a Vice President who was destroyed by his. Spiro T. Agnew, former Vice President, tax cheat and scourge of impudent snobs everywhere, entertained a noble, if misguided ambition: where other Nixon cronies sought to vindicate themselves through memoirs (something Agnew put off until the early '80s), Agnew wanted to write novels. The result is a blockheaded thriller that reads like an eleven year old imitating Robert Ludlum.

The headless body of Spiro T(heodore). He resigned his office before Nixon did because of a little tax complication (failing to report bribes as income and evading the tax on bribes), making them both crooks. Before distinguishing himself thus, Agnew was the Governor of Maryland, best-known for trying to ban pinball machines and blaming race riots on Civil Rights leaders

Vice President Spiro Agnew was famous for his verbiage against critics of the Nixon White House. He became infamous for resigning from the post in 1973 to plead no contest to criminal charges of tax evasion and money laundering due to accepting bribes when governor of Maryland.

His novel explores a Vice President whose political career is in great jeopardy when caught in a maelstrom of controversy, which is not what it all appears to be within the court of public opinion. Agnew depicts the depths that politics can plummet and how the real story may be lost in the games reserved exclusively for The Beltway.

The theme is timeless and Agnew does an excellent job in telling the rest of the story in the chess match of power, where fact and fiction becomes as garbled as truth and lies.

This book is not the best political novel ever conceived. It's the story of a vice-president who falls into disgrace. It's a bit dated, especially after the events (affairs) of the Clinton Administration (the guilty VP in the novel has the character of a Sunday School teacher compared to the shenanigans of the last 8 years).
It is interesting, however, in that the author is none other than Spiro T. Agnew -- an insider who knew something about the way the vice-presidency operated -- and who was no stranger to controversy.
A modest effort, but worth the read for those who enjoy the genre of the political novel, or for those who wonder what Agnew did in his spare time after leaving Washington!

OCARO
I enjoyed this novel more than I expected to. It was interesting to see the geopolitical situation that Mr. Agnew posits at the start of the book - is it his ideal? One might expect the Vice-President of the title to reflect Agnew's point-of-view, but from the start we are told he is "overly ambitious". How about the President? Well, we are told he is old and ineffective. I would suggest that the Prime Minister of Singapore, who pulls no punches in setting out his own world-view, may be the one character who speaks for the author.
