In Lost Witness,a small lost boy is found next to the body of a drug mule and becomes the center of a drug ring fight between two brothers, one in Houston and his sibling in Mexico. Once again Niki Alexander becomes involved in the feud to find answers that will save the child.
In a Matter of Revenge a young pre-teen takes it upon himself to expose a wealthy businessman as a pornographer and pedophile. Desperate to find his friend, a possible victim, who has disappeared, he accepts assistance from the eleven-year-old runaway Niki Alexander has been asked to find.

She quit to become a counselor at Open Palms, a shelter for teen runaways, throwaways and delinquents. Niki makes it her life's work to prevent another unnecessarily death of a child.
