Hot Rubber & Cold Blood is a story chapter in Mafia III.

Overview

Lincoln meets John Donovan in front of the Baby Bear B.B.Q. in Tickfaw Harbor, where he tells him that Franco "Frank" Pagani runs the district, reporting to Tommy Marcano. He has a ship called The Tanager, which he uses to smuggle contraband in and out of the city. For the past eight months he's making regular trips, saying he's going to Bermuda, when in reality he's going to Cuba. His rackets are centered around stolen cars and freight, so busting those up will be the ticket in getting Pagani to make the trip back to New Bordeaux.

Best Oil Racket

Gina Kowalski is a car thief in a world dominated by misogynistic assholes, but she knows she stands to benefit by helping Lincoln. She tells him that Jack "Junior" Holland runs the auto theft racket in Tickfaw and if Lincoln breaks up his major operations he won't be able to pay his kickback to Frank Pagani.

Holland Bros. Shipping & Freight

Lincoln meets with Pablo Duarte at Port Bourbon in Tickfaw Harbor to discuss what Pablo knows about Frank Pagani and Pops Holland. He informs him that it's due to his connections in Cuba that Pagani's smuggling operations got on his radar. He states that Pops Holland runs the Holland Bros. Shipping & Freight yard, doing a lot of business with Havana, and that due to losing River Row he's had to resort to air drops to get his contraband in.
