      “When their consciousness is uploaded into a virtual reality world as part of a new witness protection program, a mafia don and his family find that…” (Then tell us the main conflict of the story)

        Or maybe the witness protection  program entails sending them to Mars.  (Which has been colonized for a generation or so. ) Which turns out to be virgin territory for them to get back into the business of doing what they do best — or worst.

        fwiw

          I don’t get it. How does the upload protect them? How does it stop their enemy from wiping out their physical bodies?

            Building on Richiev’s “When their consciousness is uploaded into a virtual reality world as part of a new witness protection program, a mafia don must protect his family against the notorious organized crime figure they testified against, who has followed them.”
