Run, Hide, Repeat is a memoir of a childhood steeped in unexplained fear and menace. Gripping and suspenseful, it moves from the revelation that Dakin's family has been on the run from the Mafia, to her uneasy acceptance of her family's dire situation, to bewildered anger at a cruel charade.

As she revisits her past, Dakin uncovers the human capacity for betrayal, manipulation, and deception— and the power of love to forgive. As compelling and twisted as a thriller, Run Hide Repeat is an unforgettable portrait of a family threatened by those closest to them.
