Blake investigates when a truck striking an abandoned mansion outside Reno cause a wall to collapse - and a skeleton to be revealed. Blake must sift through the clues revealed by a young man who told his mother of the disappearance of a boy 25 years earlier, a caretaker reluctant to cooperate in the investigation and a military school graduate with an ax to grind.

Lt. Rod Blake
Oh, hello. I'm Rod Blake, chief investigator for the Nevada state troopers. You know, eternity to a small boy means the time stretching ahead till he's a man - to the rest of us it means forever. But both versions of eternity - the small boy's and the true one - have a place in this story called, "The Patient Skeleton". It may be that the character mentioned in the title is the only one that's really qualified to discourse on both patience and eternity.
