"Milena o el fémur más bello del mundo" tells the story of Milena, a beautiful girl whose looks are also a curse. As an adolescent, she became a sex slave, then tried to flee when her protector, a business tycoon, died of a heart attack while he was on top of her. In her harrowing escape, she runs into "the Blues", a trio formed by journalist Tomas Arizmendi, the politician Amelia Navarro, and high security specialist Jaime Lemus. They try to help free her, but she keeps a thorny mystery in her treasured black book that's both her salvation and revenge. Winner of the 2014 Planeta prize. Writer, journalist, political analyst and economist Zepeda Patterson’s latest titles include “Los corruptores” (2013, Dashiell Hammett prize finalist) and “Los suspirantes” (2012).
