Summary
The unforgettable memoir of a family betrayed by a cruel deception Pauline Dakin, a well-known CBC journalist, spent her childhood on the run. Without warning or goodbyes, her mother twice uprooted her and her brother, moving thousands of miles away from family and friends. Years later her mother revealed they'd been running from the Mafia and were receiving protection from a covert anti-organized crime task force. When her mother decided to go into protective custody, an exhausted Dakin planned to disappear as well. But before that happened, she made a horrifying discovery. Her family's strange existence was based on a bizarre hoax, a web of lies manufactured by trusted loved ones. Complete with hit men, body doubles, and undercover agents, Run, Hide, Repeat is a memoir of a childhood steeped in unexplained fear and menace. Dakin's story stretches credulity but it was all too real. Gripping and suspenseful, it moves from Dakin's uneasy acceptance of her family's dire situation to bewildered anger at a cruel charade. As she revisits her past, Run, Hide, Repeat becomes a redemptive story of the power of love to overcome betrayal and deception
