Why, an up-to-no-good thief has stolen a precious copy of the new book in the "50 Shades Of Grey" series!

Apparently, Penguin Random House and the police are working together to hunt down the scoundrel, who might be planning to pirate the stolen copy. You know it's a legit robbery when the publisher won't comment "due to an ongoing police investigation." Yikes.

The new book, Grey, retells the same tale as Fifty Shades of Grey, but is written from Christian's perspective. Because it's about time we gave male protagonists a chance to tell their side of the story!

Author E.L. James has already released a short excerpt from her book on Instagram:

#Grey p.159...

Hopefully until things get sorted out, she can remain calm and kick back with some 50 Shades Of Grey wine.
