There are a million stories in Liberty City. This one changes everything. Once a trusted wise guy in the Mercanti crime family, Ricky Farace was forced into hiding after killing a made man. Now he's back and it's time for things to be put right.
The streets of Liberty City are in turmoil. Warring Mafiosi vie for control as the town begins to self-destruct under waves of political corruption, organized crime, drug trafficking and union strikes. No one can be trusted as Ricky tries to clean up the mess of the city's chaotic underworld. Deranged hit men, morally depraved tycoons, cynical politicians and his own mother stand in his way as Marcus tries to bring the city under his control. Forced to fight for his life in an odyssey that will shake Liberty City to its foundations, Ricky must use any means necessary to secure his place in the leadership of the Leone family in a town up for grabs.
Los Santos, San Andreas.
'The City of Angels'
City of angels my ass. This city is a cesspit. All the scum and villainy you'd ever want to see on the West coast.
You've got the street gangs, bikers, the Armenians, meth dealers and Cartel bosses, then you have us, the wiseguys. Now this ain't Liberty City so don't expect to get a pardon when you're in someone else's turf. These days you've gotta rely on your wits, fists and back. Now I say back because you don't know who's gonna come up behind you. Now lemmie give you a little bit of history, The family has been around since the early 50's. Originally it was just a small crew doing scores here and there. Bootlegging, grand theft you name it we did it. In this day and age we can't do as we used to. We've been all over this fine country of ours. From Vice City to Los Venturas but our roots are back in Liberty City. Now Los Santos ain't exactly the haven we've been looking for but it'll do just fine. Anyway I'm gonna stop fuckin' with you if you're looking for work come find us. We've got a little place down on the beach, La Sparta. Oh and one thing; Don't forget your shine box!
