The Fists & the Flames is a story chapter in Mafia III.

Overview

Lincoln Clay takes down the gambling and black market rackets of the Southdowns district in order to get to the man who runs it, Tommy Marcano.

Narrative

Gambling

Lincoln meets with "Sweet" Danny Little to discuss a problem he's having with Johnny "Two-Dicks" Peralta. It seems Peralta, who runs the Marcano sports book out of Wilcock's Saloon, is demanding Danny go down in the fifth round of his upcoming championship match. When he refused, they broke his brother's arm in three places. Danny fills Lincoln in on what he knows about Two-Dicks' gambling operation, including that he's holding Eddie Kenner, another boxer that Two-Dicks wants to use in some off-book fights. He suggests Lincoln do some talking to Peralta's people.

Black Market

Lincoln meets with Grant Purdue to discuss a problem he's having with the Marcano organization. It seems he agreed to let Artie Higgins hijack one of his trucks for the insurance money as a one-time deal but now he won't quit. His insurance company has dropped him as "high risk" and he just can't take the losses anymore. He tells Lincoln there's money in it for him if he can return the latest truckload to him undamaged.
