Listen, I got plenty of business to take care of. Take Paulie Sindacco. His family's finished in this town. But he thinks he can just run away, like he's got no dues to pay. I'm in jail because of that bastard! Make that son of a bitch pay.
Salvatore Leone

Dead Reckoning is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories given to protagonist Toni Cipriani by Leone Family Don Salvatore Leone from the police station in Pike Creek, Shoreside Vale, Liberty City.


Toni visits Salvatore in prison again, this time standing underneath the window of his cell. Salvatore is still irate at being put in jail and tells Toni that he wants revenge on Sindacco Family Don Paulie Sindacco before he leaves Liberty City. Toni drives to the dock at Cochrane Dam and sees Paulie in his boat. Paulie tells his men to shoot at Toni, but Toni manages to defend himself and take Paulie out.

After this mission, the Sindacco family has been wiped out from Liberty City, and the neighborhood of Torrington in Staunton Island is now a Yakuza turf, and Kazuki Kasen takes over the The Big Shot Casino.


Post-Mission Phone Call

Toni Cipriani: Yeah?

Donald Love: Toni? It's Donald. No wait, don't hang up! I've got a very exciting proposition for you... please call round at my current... um... residence, and I'll fill you in. Toni...? Please, Toni, have a heart. I'm calling you with my last di...


The reward for completing the mission is $3,000 and the Shogun Showdown and Panlantic Land Grab missions. Also, with the death of Paulie Sindacco, the Sindacco Argentos as well as Sindacco Family members will no longer appear in Torrington, thus making the area safer, and therefore, wiping out the Sindacco presence permanently in the city.

  • In this mission, Paulie Sindacco says "Hey Toni! Why don't you swim up here and kiss my ass?". Ironically, however, Toni cannot swim as a result of pollution in the water.
  • When Toni blows up the boat and kills Paulie, he says Ladies and gentlemen, Paulie Sindacco has left the building!. This is a reference to Elvis Presley's famous catchphrase Ladies and gentlemen, Elvis has left the building!.
  • In navigation, "dead reckoning" is the process of calculating one's current position by using a previously determined position, or fix, and advancing that position based upon known or estimated speeds over elapsed time and course.
