And since he didn't return for the third or fourth Splinter Cell novels, I'm wondering if this EndWar is written by that newer author (whoever it may be).
Still, that acknowledgments page you mention...

I'm reading the New Tom Clancy book EndWar, based on the upcomming game. It is written by David Michaels, which I know is the name Benson used to write his to Splinter Cell novels. The reason I think that Benson wrote Endwar is because in the acknowledgments page, Michaels thanks a Mr. Tom Colgan. Now, in both DoubleShot, and The Man with the Red Tattoo, Benson also thanks Mr. Colgan. Does anyone know if Benson wrote EndWar as well, or is it just a coincidence?
Ooh, now this is a question I'd like to know the answer to. Damn that pseudonym. I was planning on picking up the novelization of Tom Clancy's EndWar based strictly on its premise, but if Raymond Benson is in fact the author then I may just skip it. Benson's Bond novels are amusing diversions but I am not a great fan of his prose.
So, as we're unsure of its author, perhaps I should be asking... How is the book? What do you think of it?
