Publisher's Summary

An unforgettable family tale of deception and betrayal, love and forgiveness
Pauline Dakin spent her childhood on the run. Without warning, her mother twice uprooted her and her brother, moving thousands of miles away from family and friends. Disturbing events interrupted their outwardly normal life: break-ins, car thefts, even physical attacks on a family friend. Many years later, her mother finally revealed they'd been running from the Mafia and were receiving protection from a covert anti-organized crime task force.
But the truth was even more bizarre. Gradually Dakin's fears gave way to suspicion. She put her journalistic training to work and discovered that the Mafia threat was actually an elaborate web of lies. As she revisits her past, Dakin uncovers the human capacity for betrayal and deception and the power of love to forgive.
Run, Hide, Repeat is a memoir of a childhood steeped in unexplained fear and menace. Gripping and suspenseful, it moves from Dakin's uneasy acceptance of her family's dire situation to bewildered anger. As compelling and twisted as a thriller, Run Hide Repeat is an unforgettable portrait of a family under threat and the resilience of family bonds.

"What happens when 'Fake News' takes over your family? This harrowing true story reads like a psychological thriller - I was haunted by it." (Plum Johnson, author of They Left Us Everything)
"From a childhood marked by secrets and sudden moves to an adulthood where truth - and lies - of the past are laid bare, Run, Hide, Repeat is a fascinating story of family, deception, and forgiveness." (Sonja Larsen, author of Red Star Tattoo)
