Shortly before he was to marry Kate Beckett, Richard Castle was ran off the road and supposedly kidnapped to carry out a secret mission to secure an intelligence asset in the fight against terrorism. His travels include a visits to Los Angeles, Montreal and Thailand. He was also shot and was infected with Dengue fever. He was eventually discovered floating in a dinghy in the Atlantic.
Two weeks of his time are accounted for: Thailand where he was reportedly recruited by a government agency, possibly the CIA, to bring in Balil Jafari, a former member of Pakastani intelligence who went to the dark side. Jafari and Castle have a history, hence why the mystery writer was brought into the operation.
