Meet the Author

Tom Clancy
Thirty years ago Tom Clancy was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history. Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore's Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel. His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it "the perfect yarn." From that day forward, Clancy established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense. He passed away in October 2013.

    Tom Clancy's Conviction

    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.

    Loved it!!

    Fisher is back and on the run. The beginning is a lot like the Jason Bourne movies. Sam is being hunted by the US and the plot is all pieced together a little at a time. A very on the edge of you seat book!

    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.

    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!!!!

    Definitely NOT Mr. Michaels best work..

    I've been an avid fan of Sam Fisher since well before he was even officially brought to life. David Michaels did an okay job creating good Third Echelon stories for the first 4 books. The fifth - 'Conviction'? - hardly. Not only does he murder and rearrange Mr. Fishers personality for the first 3/4 of the book, he bores us while doing so! He constantly will bore the reader with exagerrated detail statements (Did Michaels read some Charles Dickens on the side while writing this?), while providing very little action statements. Sure, sometimes we need to know how many steps down the 'hallway' Sam takes - but not how many steps he takes in every facet of his life! When he gets to the action statements, they feel rushed and sloppily directed. There are also more number sequences in this book than a high school math text. Loose ends; without giving away spoilers, there are a TON of loose ends and terribly set up characters (scientist??). Also, heads up: END GAME IS THE SAME FLIPPIN STORY!!! Just told in a different perspective. Talk about waste of money.. I'm distraught and feel let down.

    I'll keep this short and sweet: To satisfy a hunger of more Sam Fisher tales, go ahead and read it. But to satisfy the DESIRE to read more Sam Fisher tales - skip it and hope Mr. Michaels is on the chopping block for numbers 7 and beyond.

    Thrilling escapism for those that like a fast paced read.

    Since this was my first splinter cell book I had no idea what to expect, I loved it. The pace was quick the plot was intriguing and the characters engaging. The scenes invoked by the book were clearly visible, the fact that I wasn't familiar with weapons didn't interfere at all with the story. No romance, no sappy rhetoric, no flowery pros, just a great story. i would recommend this book for anyone who wants to enjoy a special ops/ splinter cell story without picking up a joy stick.

    Good Book

    I read this not to long ago and I gotta say, its by far one of the best Clancy novels I have read. David Michaels writes very well. It is a good companion book that sets up the game for the Xbox 360.If you are into spys and Jason Bourne kind of stuff, you should definitely read this book. Its one that once you start you can not put down.

    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.

    In the world of Sam Fisher, anything he does, he does for a reason. Instead of hiding in the shadows in this book, he is hiding from the world. See how he endures hardships of others trained like him, that are out hunting for him.

    The Splinter Cell Conviction book is a must read for any fans out there that have enjoyed playing the games. Conviction is one of about five Splinter Cell books that are just fantastically written by David Michaels. I never had enjoyed reading, but with great books like these it was hard to put them down. Just wondering how Fisher was going to get out of a situation to see how he would react was enough to keep the book exciting. It seemed like I could hear the voice of Sam Fisher by Michael Ironside as Fisher was speaking. I really wish they could make a movies out of the novel series. The other books are great, but Conviction stands out since Fisher isn't just silent shadow, but now is a rogue agent. Conviction was probably my favorite book in the series, and if you decide to read it, read the other book first. Also, the book after it called "End Game" is very similar to Conviction. Both books are parallel plots, but written from different positions. This series is my all time favorite that I really recommend to other readers. It is full of action, romance, thriller, adventure, and a little humor, if I can say so. So go and buy it if you are seeking a good read, and you will get your moneys worth and a little more. Fisher's world is dangerous, and now the world is after Fisher.

    Okay, but not great

    This book did not measure up to David Michaels' previous Splinter Cell books. It was slower and less interesting. It just didn't do anything for me like the previous four books.
