2009/10: The Search for Sam Fisher/Arms ConpiracyEdit
In the Splinter Cell: Conviction (novel), Kimberly and a team of Splinter Cells, led by Ben Hansen, track Sam Fisher across Europe trying to bring him in, while Anna Grímsdóttir is back home trying to uncover a mole in Third Echelon and in Ben Hansens team. Fisher discovers a large group of aristocrats are meeting to buy a very deadly cache of arms and Fisher must stop them before World War III breaks out. He is able to lure Hansens team in to a trap and convinces them he needs their help to stop the arms deal. It is revealed in Splinter Cell: Endgame (Novel), that Gillespie had sex with Sam Fisher months after he trained her.
- It is unclear if the Conviction/Endgame novels are part of the same canon as the games or part of a parallel timeline. If it is part of the same chronology of the games its unclear how details take place in relationship to the game, Splinter Cell: Conviction (including the rise of Tom Reed, and Grim's position).
