Gordon Sargent is just one of the people living on the worst place of America. With a powerful circle of friends and a history on the police database, Gordon tells the tales on how he survive Liberty City amidst his severe gambling problem while serving a gang on a bout for its former glory. His life as the lieutenant of the Irish Mob, headed by the McReary family, is never easy. All the years working for criminals while witnessing the decline of some prominent people and gangs in Liberty City, he has to help himself rise up from his society full of violence and drunkards. Just as things could get bad, it ended up worse: An Italian crime family from Alderney has been employing the Irish to act as extra muscle and his debtors want a cut from him. A long night waits for Gordon, as he embarks to help himself and the gang, apart from causing chaos and trouble of course.
