Synopsis from publisher:

Mixing realism with humor, GANGLAND presents an entertaining and surreal look into the violent world of gangs and organized crime. These fourteen felonious tales of malice and duplicity explore the motivations of men uniting for illicit gain through violence, murder, and intimidation. Featuring made gangsters, suburban wannabes, and alien enforcers, this provocative book includes stories of a lonely hit man on a suicide mission, a mob informant’s deadly new life, and old-school retribution in New Russia.
