Description of this Book

Margie Thomson, accomplished author, has researched the struggle of Matt Blomfield, an Auckland businessman, to save his reputation after a relentless online attack by Whale Oil blogger Cameron Slater. Blomfield then fought for his life in his own backyard after an armed gunman tried to shoot him. A gripping read, this story shows us how unprotected we are from digital attacks and how time-consuming and costly the path to justice is. This real-life drama has been taking place since 2012, with him finally winning the defamation case in March this year.
