Cleaver's descent to earth lands him straight into the clutches of a one-time mentor and now powerful criminal on the run, Edgar Thompson. Meanwhile Barney is adrift above the Pacific. Last seen dangling from a balloon drifting across the Sydney skyline, Cleaver Greene's decent to earth lands him straight into the clutches of a one-time mentor and now powerful criminal-on-the-run, Edgar Thompson. Meanwhile, his ballooning companion Barney, who was thought to be lost, miraculously turns up on a beach in New Zealand. But not before the Australian and NZ Navies have been called out at great expense to both. Thompson's return has not only Cleaver, but a few other people in high places feeling very nervous, including ex-Premier and now broadcaster Cal McGregor. Thompson also has sway with a certain highly-placed policewoman, so when Cleaver's protection officer is murdered - with ex-wife Wendy's help, he goes into hiding.

A hot air balloon rises and maintains height, generating lift because of heated air that is frequently re-heated within a bag called the envelope, whilst suspended beneath the envelope there is a wicker basket and about two metres above is the source of heat, using an open gas flame to force hot air deep inside the balloon. The heated air inside the envelope makes it buoyant since it has a lower density than the relatively cold air outside the envelope. RAKE has a unique hot air balloon that defies the laws of physics, and stays aloft for three days without ever turning on the two gas flames to force hot air deep inside the envelope. See more »
