In the middle of 18 century, when streets and alleys of England shook with fear by one name “Jack the Ripper”, it was then Scotland Yard took the initiative to investigate on this case. Another such agency was the FBI that got hold of Al Capone a United States gangster who terrorized Chicago during prohibition until he was arrested for tax evasion.

In his novel Shylock Holmes is able to find the existence of Jack the Ripper and brings him in the limelight. The novel was converted into a Hollywood movie where people come to know about Jack the Ripper, but speaking reality we do not know who Jack the Ripper was.

The craze of Shylock Holmes really bought people to believe that he really existed. Shylock Holmes was associated with Scotland Yard and made a remarkable achievement in both books and movies. He was a fictionist sleuth who not only dealt with Jack the Ripper but also dealt with other crimes.
