Abstract: We investigate certain finite subgroups $\Gamma $ of $GL_{n}(\mathbf{Z}\Pi )$, where $\Pi $ is a finite nilpotent group. Such a group $\Gamma $ gives rise to a $\mathbf{Z}[\Gamma \times \Pi]$-module; we study the characters of these modules to limit the structure of $\Gamma $. We also exhibit some exotic subgroups $\Gamma $.
