Tuesday Tales October 9th, 2012. Theme Knife.

Nathan “Quicksilver” Silver started at age eight robbing pushcarts.  His hands were quick for stealing from the pushcarts and being down the street before anyone could catch him.

He learned crime before he got to Brooklyn’s Brownsville neighborhood.    He learned his criminal skills from the Jewish crime bosses in the Russian city of Odessa’s Moldavanka neighborhood  There, he ran errands and learned how to use a knife.

He learned to fight anti-Semitic bullies in Odessa and was considered the master knife fighter of Amboy Street.

You will have to stay tuned for his future in the gangs of Brownsville.




About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.

    This guy sounds like one not to be messed with. Now, will he use all these skills for good or evil?
