While Golden Age mystery fiction largely shows little interest in science, perhaps the majority of detective stories of the Doyle era paid tribute to science and technology. Science was in fact part of the very genre of detective fiction, in many people's eyes.  In both Britain and the US, some authors wrote stories that focused primarily on Scientific Detection.
