“Grey”: New Fifty Shades Book Stolen
|10 June, 2015||Posted by Stacey under Books|
A copy of best selling author EL James’s latest Fifty Shades novel has been stolen. Kent Police has launched an investigation after Random House discovered a copy of Grey had gone missing on Monday.
It is feared thieves may leak the novel, or sell extracts to the media.
The book, which re-tells the first installment of the hit trilogy from billionaire Christian Grey’s point of view, is due to be released next week on Christian Grey’s birthday, 18th June.
Random House and solicitors for the publisher would not give any other information about the missing book.
“We have no comment to make due to an ongoing police investigation,” a spokesman said.
A spokesman for Kent Police said: “Officers are making inquiries after receiving a report that a book had been stolen on 8 June.”
The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy has sold more than 125 million copies worldwide since the first book’s release in 2011.
When announcing the release of Grey last week, James said she wrote the new book after “thousands of readers” had written to her requesting to hear Christian’s point of view.
“Christian is a complex character and readers have always been fascinated by his desires and motivations, and his troubled past. Also, as anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows, there are two sides to every story,” she said.
In Christian’s own words, and through his thoughts, reflections, and dreams, E L James offers a fresh perspective on the love story that has enthralled millions of readers around the world.
Christian Grey exercises control in all things; his world is neat, disciplined, and utterly empty—until the day that Anastasia Steele falls into his office, in a tangle of shapely limbs and tumbling brown hair. He tries to forget her, but instead is swept up in a storm of emotion he cannot comprehend and cannot resist. Unlike any woman he has known before, shy, unworldly Ana seems to see right through him—past the business prodigy and the penthouse lifestyle to Christian’s cold, wounded heart.
Will being with Ana dispel the horrors of his childhood that haunt Christian every night? Or will his dark sexual desires, his compulsion to control, and the self-loathing that fills his soul drive this girl away and destroy the fragile hope she offers him?
