I don't know about Shylock HOLMES, but i do know that Shylock was a character in one of Shakespear's plays (The Merchant of Venice). He was a Jewish usurer, so saying that a person is a Shylock means he's a loan shark.
You shouldn't mess with the guys down on 57th, they're real shylocks and the interest rates will kill you.

Pseudonym of a blogger of undisclosed identity who sounds off about various matters -- economic, political, social, sexual -- at the blog "The Adventures of Shylock Holmes." The dude (definitely male) sounds educated, a bit smart-alecky, conservative with a heart (sometimes). Not American -- his spelling is weird. Prolly a rich kid waitin to make a name for himself.

If you think that Shylock Holmes charged too much for helping you legally, you would be totally "shocked" at how much his faithful sidekick, Doctor Wattson, charged for HIS medical services!
