when you we're C.O. here?

Nope. Never met her.

I'm sorry to give you

the bad news, Major.

Ex Major.

Sir, I wanted to warn you.


Ordered not to.

Colonel Morgan, directly.

Maybe you should warn me now.

Speak freely Sergeant.

Major Turner is an excellent officer, sir.

Has she been assigned an attorney yet?

Ordered not to give out

any information about that, sir.


Always follow orders, Sergeant.

Yes, sir.

Just curious, who was your DI in boot camp?

Sergeant Green, sir.

Well, let's say, if Sergeant Green

were having legal troubles.

Would you be able to recommend

an attorney for him?



Definitely I'd recommend Colonel Moorcroft over at Fort

Dyer, for the highest security person you can find, sir.


You're the assigned counsel

for Major Susan Turner.

I'm Jack Reacher.

Former Commander of the 110th.

I was wondering

when you were gonna show up.

Major Turner requested under no circumstances

are you to be granted visitation privileges.

Why would she say that?

Maybe she read your file.

Anti-authority, anti-social.

- Anti-lawyer. - Deadbeat dad?

Excuse me?

Says here you never paid child support.

I'm not a father.

Well, a woman named

Candice Dutton begs to differ.

She contacted the army

seeking compensation for her daughter.

Samantha Dutton, she's 15 now.

This is a mistake.

They usually are.

Mother's got two

priors, prostitution, possession.

The kid's been in and out

of foster care her whole life.

Any feelings anything about that?

About foster care?

Life sucks.

I meant the kid.

I don't have a kid.

I've never heard of Candice Dutton.

I'm here about Major Turner.

What evidence do they have?

A hard drive.

Containing classified information

found at Major Turner's residence.
