      The Talking Skeleton splinters Rad Sergeant and his gang off into several different situations, and introduces Rad's cousin Joshua Myers. The boys dig for buried treasure, but find a skeleton that throws them into an investigation where they face many dangers before they solve the mystery. At school, two spoiled rich boys nearly kill Peter because of his color. The same spoiled boys threaten Rad that if he does not quit the basketball team so one of them can be the captain, he will be hurt.
