Mona manages to escape, just as Max sees her. Max showed up only when the cleaners had finished off the Mafia and were cleaning the place up, and taking the weapons to a more secure location, the Castling Insurance Company's construction site, which is basically their front building.
The Mafia then makes a daring attack directly on Vlad at his restaurant, killing many of Vlad's Russian guards and almost killing Vlad himself.
However, Max saves Vlad's life. Note his arm is in a sling from Mona's earlier attack. Vlad lies and says Vinnie is "wiping out everyone he sees as competition on the black market gun trade. Then comes the cleaners' attack on Max directly, at his apartment. Vlad likely ordered this they're mercenaries, and I doubt they'd do it just out of personal revengebecause he knew Max was getting into the case, and he knew how much trouble Max could be.
Of course, it didn't work. Max, trying to solve the case, hooks up with Mona, who is going to try to save Corchrane from Vlad's cleaners. Corchrane and other Inner Circle members on Woden's side live there. Therefore, this is Vlad making a decisive move in his war against Woden.

Max doesn't even know what's going on.

So the cleaners are led to Mona's place and Max and Mona fight them off, with Max escaping in a cleaner's van and being taken to their "headquarters," at the Castling Insurance Company construction site.
Here, they take out a good deal of the cleaners and indirectly blow up one of their buildings. This would undoubtedly translate to a huge pain in the neck for Vlad. He sends Winterson to kill them both, thinking that Max would trust her enough for her to get the drop on him. What he didn't count on, of course, was Max shooting Winterson when he feared she would kill Mona.
Then Max gets shot and falls down a ways, ending up in the hospital. Part 3 Max wakes up and stumbles through the hospital, only to find that the cleaners have come to kill him. He witnesses Lieutenant Jim Bravura's shooting, and winds up getting to Winterson's body in the morgue.
