Fifty Shades of publicity stunt?
Less than a week after U.K. police launched an investigation following a report by Fifty Shades of Grey publisher Random House that a finished copy of EL James’ upcoming sequel to the trilogy had been stolen, inquiries have been called off.
On Wednesday, Kent Police said there was “no evidence” to suggest that any offense had been committed and that “no more action” would be taken.
However, in a statement, Random House reiterated that a copy of Grey had indeed been stolen, but said it was “delighted that the book’s theft does not appear to have been for any malicious intent or financial gain.”
The publisher added that it would continue its own investigations into the matter.
