Kckstarter campaign will end soon enough and there is no time to try to add what I am about to suggest. But I've got some sort of an idea that can be used for future expansions.
It occurred to me lately that there are only bad guys (gang members and maybe saboteurs) in the dens. You can find innocent people there too: a waiter in Illegal casino, a pizza guy who brought order of gang members. A kidnaped girl locked in a back room. Or not so innocent (like a corrupted cop who came to take his share). It could add a whole new dimension to your game experience.
Think about situation when innocent bystander is killed in a firefight as result of a really bad dice roll on your part. And your character is so shacken that he or she gets a point or two of mental damage.
Or maybe you discover a frightened young girl when you enter bedroom of a local boss. The girl sees you and pleads you for help. And you can save her by spending your run dice result to move her to exit. One room per die.
Of course such unexpected bystanders should probably appear randomly at random dens (there is nothing unexpected in saving the same girl from the same apartment every game session).

Good idea, maybe some Hostages, need "run" or "knife" face to free them and grant some victory points at the end of the game (eg. 1 hostage nothing, 2-3 1VP 4+ 2 VP)...

If hostage in question is tied to a chair, using knife to cut his ropes is a good idea. Alternatively gang member can simply use hostage as a living shield. He stands right there holding his knife at his victim's throat. You can not use your knife to kill that particular minion because that means putting in danger life of a poor hostage. He is simply not letting you anywhere near himself threatening to kill poor lad. But you can try to shoot that bastard down. But you have to aim carefully (otherwise you are bound to hit hostage). That is spending two pistol results to kill minion who is threatening hostage.
