It sure looks that way. Random House is still treating this theft as if it happened, and say they will keep investigating, but the police have found no evidence any leak actually happened. Very likely, this was a publicity stunt. Of course the publisher denies that this was a publicity stunt, but it doesn’t pass the sniff test. Due to the complete lack of evidence, and EL James’s penchant for copying everything about Stephenie Meyer, I think that the police should investigate this as a crime. If you’re going to claim a theft, you should have evidence that leads you to believe that a theft happened. Guess that. That’s evidence! Yet none exists. No theft happened. It was a lie.
