Descrizione

Janette Wanda Rage was raised in a small Idaho farming community. Her three older brothers all married and moved back onto the farm. Graduating from college, Janette moves to Seattle to seek her new life.
The Seattle police department hires her as a police cadet. After months of training at the police academy she becomes a patrolman. Her farm growing up is very useful in police work. The hours of hunting and shooting places her high in marksmanship and physical conditioning.
She is assigned a Sergeant as her supervisor in the field. She gains experience in patrolling and general police work. She has yet to be allowed to drive when on patrol. A fast food store is held up and they see the suspects fleeing the scene. The Sergeant chases one suspect down while Rage goes after the other two. She arrests the two she is chasing but the Sergeant is shot. Rage returns and runs down the shooter.
The three gang members go to jail but the 13th Street Gang wants revenge. They plot the demise of Patrolman Rage, but she kills six of them. Their first attempt failed but they vow they will not fail the second time.
The next attempt will be on Rage and the entire police department.

Chapter 1 Janette Rage's Early Years

Janette Wanda Rage is enjoying a normal life as a farm girl in Idaho. Drive the tractor, feed the stock, and swimming in the pond. When older, she drags the four blocks of their small town and tease the boys from another town. See a movie and be home at 9:30. Gets up the next day and do it again.

The Rage family farm is six square miles of varied terrain typical of Idaho. The upper sections have timber with mountain streams and grazing meadows. The bottom land has the farmhouse, barns, the irrigated lands, and the remainder in dryland wheat, with some still in sage brush and jackrabbits.

Having a slow day on the farm, her three older brothers will take Janette out shooting. They will shoot box after box of shells.

The rule is, If you kill it, you eat it.

Rocks and bottles are fair game. The brothers don’t like to admit it but little sister with her pea shooter is a better shot than they are.

By the time Janette is in high school, she is shooting the same guns as her older brothers, all the way up to a 30-40 Craig. This rifle is known as the old buffalo gun from her great grandfather.

Her oldest brother gets married and builds a home on the north edge of the farm He no longer spends much time playing with his younger brothers and sister. He is now all business when on the farm.

Janette sees better than her brothers, one day she will be alone. When her second brother marries, and builds a home on the farm, she knows she must prepare to leave home and start her own adventure.

Three towns over is the County Seat, Hailey. It has a small college and is on the railway line. She decides with a partial scholarship she can go there and still be close to home. Just not too close to home.

Around the family Sunday supper table Janette as a junior in high school announces, I am going to college after high school.

The family is surprised but happy for her.

Janette’s mother has said before, She is seventeen going on twenty-six.

Janette becomes a senior in high school and her youngest and last brother gets married. All her three brothers and their families are now living on the farm and are more than enough to run it. The family adds another section from a neighbor of good bottom land with the water rights. The land will now support all four families for years to come.

Janette is five years younger than her youngest brother and twelve years behind her oldest brother. She might be the kid sister but is in some way older than her brothers. She is treated as an equal in all family decisions. She knows she could stay on the farm and be part of the local community but that does not suit her.

Janette graduates from high school and is ready for college

Janette's family has always held a weekly family council to discuss up-coming family events. When the Rage’s family was young, they pushed the highchairs up to the table. As the brothers grew the items discussed took on more importance. Such as, who had the late water turn, who would milk the cows, and who gets the family car the next weekend.

Janette goes to college with intent. Many of the kids there are because that is what is expected of them.

In college, the boys don’t like being bested by a girl. In the classroom they might live with it. But out on the playing field they can’t stand that. Janette plays on the Rugby team until she hurts the star player.

The coach tells her, Please, don't come back.

After her required classroom studies, she picks up boxing, and fencing because she misses her brother’s rough housing with her. She likes the precision of mathematics and finds the reason in a series of logic classes.

Janette comes home one Monday during her senior year in college. She is a little nervous, even after talking with her mother about the subject she is going to bring up at the family council. The Rage’s family council is held every Monday evening. It now
