    Copy of New "Fifty Shades of Grey" Novel Stolen
    Penguin Random House

    Publisher Penguin Random House says a copy of the upcoming "Fifty Shades of Grey" sequel has been stolen, just over a week before publication day.

    Penguin Random House said Wednesday that Kent Police in southern England are investigating the theft of a finished copy of E.L. James' new book, "Grey." The publisher said it could not comment further because a police investigation is underway.

    Kent Police confirmed that "officers are making inquiries after receiving a report that a book had been stolen" on Monday.

    The book retells the erotic adventures of the millions-selling "Fifty Shades" trilogy from the point of view of S&M-loving billionaire Christian Grey.

    Penguin Random House said "Grey" would be published as planned on June 18, Christian Grey's birthday.
