New Fifty Shades Novel Not Stolen, Say Police

Somewhere out there, it’s possible that Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey are having newly layered encounters that most people have not read yet. But police in North Kent, England say they don’t think so. From The Evening Standard:
Lawyers acting for publisher Penguin Random House told the press last week that a copy of new book Grey had been stolen, and warned against purchasing or printing the unlawfully obtained text, which is due for release on Thursday.
A crime report was made to Kent Police that some packaging was found to be damaged and a copy of the novel missing.
However, the force today said there was no evidence of any crime being committed, though it declined to elaborate further.
Publisher Penguin Random House denied the possibility of a publicity stunt intended to get book sales rolling.

Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian goes on sale today.
