His mission brief was to find out who were the key players, the trade routes, and to follow the money trail from the producers, distributors into the coffers of Taliban and other terrorist organizations.

His submissions to his superiors to take action to wipe out the drug stores, labs, and the drug lords, fell on deaf ears. Eventually, the deliberate inaction and ineptness of US politicians drove Dalton to take unsanctioned action and it stirred a hornet's nest which even he, one of the world's most lethal assassins, might not survive. UnchainedRex Dalton and his new friend, the military dog, Digger escaped from Afghanistan and made their way into India where they started a new life.
