I am looking for a book that does not simply state all of the halachis (such as Sefer Chafetz Chaim). Rather what I am looking for is a book that would do something like pose a question or case ("Someone rips you off and you want to warn a relative" or "You suspect someone is physically abusive and you want to make the local Rabbi aware") and then would give a full article on exactly how to go about speaking and or listening sourcing all of the points. Does anyone know of such a book or article?

There are several. One of the best selling in English is probably Chofetz Chaim: A Daily Companion, published by ArtScroll Mesorah Publications.

I found this on HebrewBooks.

Apparently, (Rabbi?) Shlomoh Rozner wrote two books that match your description: Alei Be'er and Shu"t LaChafetz BaChayim. He also apparently cross-references the latter book across the margin of his edition of Chafetz Chayim.

Thank you. I went to his house today and bought the book from him. – Gavriel Dec 5 '12 at 20:22
