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 t...ried to shoot him.
