The Pledge

(1999)
A novel by

 
 
Combining elements of David Baldacci's Absolute Power and John Grisham's The Firm, The Pledge is an absorbing thriller that asks the question: what if a college fraternity operated like the Mafia and was willing to stop at nothing to avoid discovery of its dirtiest secrets? Simsbury College lacrosse star Mark Jessy looks on the members of the school's Sigma fraternity as the only true family he has ever had. But when a freshman pledge turns up dead amid rumors of vicious hazing, Mark is forced to question his deepest loyalties. With the help of his girlfriend, he begins to investigate both the death and the Sigma organization - and discovers that the frat is a 200-year-old super-secret criminal organization with assets of over $7 billion - and is not about to let a college jock stand in its way.
