Time period? Didn't give a time period but I do expect that it can be set in any time period.
List of characters and describe? Cassie - Was a college student. She was a pythia. She joined the society.
Maddie- Red head, in her 50's, smoker. 6 ', in the society.
Faye - Head of society. She told everyone what to do.
Griffin - Very smart, very factual. In his 20's, 6'.
Erik - The protector of the group.
Abraham - Twisted. Ordered several murders.
Leroy - Murderer. Did all the dirty work for Abraham.
Problem in book, solved? Problem was to find the bones of the mother. Leroy was never held accountable for murder either.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
