Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell starts off all over Europe in many different cities and towns, it is from the point of view of a Third Echelon, splinter cell mercenary, Sam Fisher. Sam Fisher starts off by killing men that he is hired to kill for money. Sam realizes when he is on one of his missions that he is now not the one hunting his prey, but now the prey being hunted. He is not sure why there is another team of operatives trying to kill him. All he knows is that they are highly trained and he knows the leader, Hanson, who Fisher doesn't have a good past with. No matter how fast or how much Fisher moves from place to place and doesn't leave a trail, Hanson and the team are always one step ahead and are very close to capturing him. Fisher finally finds out his reason for being hunted, it is because someone found key evidence that he was a mole who betrayed his government. Fisher then keeps on the run and finds out a couple possibilities that the mole might be. He narrows it down to Monroe and Kovac. He then goes on a mission to find the man who he suspected hired one of these two to get to the bottom of this situation. I really like this book! It is very action packed and actually one of the first books I have read that I couldn't put down. Tom Clancy is an amazing author who knows how to keep is readers interested and always saying "I can read one more chapter". The only downside to this book is I could only find one major theme that was, Sam didn't know who he could trust because he didn't know who turned him in. Out of a five star rating I would give "Conviction" 4 out of 5. I am now hooked on the Tom Clancy series and can't wait to pick up other books in the future.

Splinter Cell Conviction and Endgame are two of the worst books I have read in years.

I have read Splinter Cell Conviction and Endgame and I am still trying figure out why both books have the same ending? I would not recommend either of these books to my worst enemy!!!!

    Shocking

    As typical of all Splinter Cell's Third Echelon 's Sam Fisher is one of the deadliest men in the world and he continues this in the current story. Sam is training new recruits and try as they may he continues to outfox them due to his extensive training. Thee a mole in the group and he miust discover whop it is or Splinter Cells or die. Thrilling and exciting as you might expect of Clancy.

    Big plot twist

    I pretty much enjoyed this one. It's not as good as Fallout, but it didn't let me down. The big twist right at the beginning really told you that you were in for a different story than the others in the series. I can see how the change in circumstances surrounding the character Sam Fisher would disappoint some readers, but it did bring out a lot about him as the story progressed. You really got to see that he was really the best at what he did. Even with the odds entirely stacked against him, nobody can handle it like Sam. Take my review for what you will, amongst all of them here. I can understand how some might have been disappointed, but I really wasn't.
