A manuscript of E.L. James’ new novel Grey has been stolen. The book, which is Fifty Shades of Grey written from Christian Grey’s point of view, is due out on June 18th.

Penguin Random house is concerned that the stolen manuscript will be leaked in advance of the book’s release date. According to a report in The Daily Mail, the police are investigating the theft along with the publishers. Here is more from The Daily Mail:

It is feared thieves may be planning to release pirated versions of the novel, or sell extracts to media outlets.

Penguin Randomhouse today would not comment on the missing book, and referred all queries to lawyers – who said they could not divulge any information on the theft.
