Crosstown Park has a social conscience and a spiritual component which sets it apart from your typical thriller. Melanie brings her vast experience in the inner workings of the legal system to her books, especially when it involves the members of our culture that do not typically have a voice- the children, the elderly, and the mentally disadvantaged. She explores issues that are relevant to the social culture of today's world.

On a flight from New York to Houston, Alex Stockton, a successful young lawyer, meets Reverend Morse. He is in dire need of a lawyer to represent one of his foster home house parents, Jose Gonzales. The Reverend believes that Jose was falsely accused of sexually molesting Chris Jackson, a teenage boy, in Crosstown Park. He convinces Alex that Chris Jackson made the allegation against Jose because his uncle, Voodoo, is seeking revenge against the Reverend for disrupting his illegal drug and prostitution activities. Alex's instincts take over and her long buried memories of her foster home background surface. Before the plane lands she has taken Jose's case- pro bono.
She has six weeks to discover what happened in Crosstown Park between Jose and Chris. She teams up with Nic Wright, a handsome former cop-turned-security-company-owner, to save Jose and the poor children at Shepherd's Cottages. As the case progresses, Alex's life and perfect trial record is threatened. Not to mention her lifelong dream of becoming a judge. What she really needs is a witness...
