At Simsbury College's most exclusive frat house, a teenage boy is found dead - battered, his bones broken, with sick rhymes scrawled all over his naked body...

The cops call it suicide. Dean Templeton agrees. But then two students, lacrosse star Mark Jessy and beautiful nonconformist Shawn Jakes, discover evidence linking Sigma to crimes that could include bribery, extortion, rape and murder.

Clearly Sigma Delta Phi isn't your typical college fraternity. And as Mark and Shawn get closer to its sinister heart, they find themselves investigating an organitation whose leaders intend to control far more than the students at Simsbury College.

I found this book totally engrossing... Thank God my college sorority didn't have this kind of hazing!
