I think you're going to need to do some more reading before this list will be helpful to you. That is a fairly rare application you speak of:
Flora, D.B., Khoo, S.T., & Chassin, L. (2007). Moderating effects of a risk factor: Modeling longitudinal moderated mediation in the development of adolescent heavy drinking. In T.D. Little, J.A. Bovaird & N. A. Card (Eds.), Modeling Ecological and Contextual Effects in Longitudinal Studies (pp. 231-254). Mahwah, NJ: Erlbaum.
