Cover for Mirreynato

Chapter 1

At the beginning of the 1980s, Town & Country, then queen of the society magazines in Mexico City, graced its pages with professor Carlos Hank González, their favorite personality. His reputation was that of a very successful man, a King Midas in both business and politics, who was tall, light-skinned, attractive, and had impeccable manners. In the captions under some of his published photographs appear phrases such as, 'Titan of the steel and trucking industries' and 'no one deserves to be so charming'.
