Maurice Renard and Albert Jean’s Blind Circle (1924; this is the 1928 English language edition). Originally: Le Singe (The Monkey). Macabre mystery novel concerning the reanimation of corpses. A scientist has discovered an electrolysis technique (“radiogenesis”), which allows him to duplicate, but not animate, animal tissue. He has fabricated lifeless clones of himself and scattered them around Paris, as a publicity stunt.
