On his way to Virginia to meet Susan, the current Commanding Officer of the 110th Military Police Squadron from 61 Hours, Jack Reacher stops at the Apollo Inn, a fading motel in rural Nebraska. In the motel's bar he overhears a drunken doctor refuse to treat a woman's nosebleed. Eleanor Duncan is married to Seth Duncan. He is a scion of the Duncan clan which holds that part of Nebraska in its iron grip. Everyone there has learned to bow to their collective will without question. Reacher suspects domestic abuse and coerces the doctor into doing the right thing.
