When Marcinko’s “friend,” the head of the CIA, asks him to spend a little quality time in Cuba, the Rogue Warrior finds there’s no way to say no. Once there, Marcinko and company discover that Fidel Castro is on his deathbed. Which wouldn’t be so bad, except that he’s planned a catastrophic surprise for the U.S. as his going-away present. The Rogue Warrior must find out ...more

Another action packed, non-thinking, sitting around novel. It is another in a series of great books.

More typical Demo Dick mind candy. Fun to read.

I need sleep!

The Rogue Warrior and his shooters have my adrenaline rushing non-stop. The back stories are just as much fun and interesting as the action series. Marcinko-san is one check if a leader, teacher, and warrior. I highly recommend this book and the entire Rogue Warrior book series!

This book is hilarious, another great entry in the tales of Daring Dick Marcinko. I am a huge fan of this unabashedly patriotic, bad guy's tail kicking sumBitch!

As always with the Rogue Warrior series. It was a fantastic and fun read!
Gabe Kinslow
The book Rogue Warrior: Seize The Day was a very colorful and interesting journey. Throughout the entire book it is a roller coaster ride of intense action and slow suspense as it follows "Rogue Warrior" Richard "Demo Dick" Marcinko through his operations in Cuba. Richard Marcinko is one of the most colorful characters I personally have ever read about, anybody who enjoys well developed characters who can be erratic, unbridled, and reckless would love Demo Dick and his team. His team includes ...more

I'd say this book is tied with "Dictator's Ransom" (Demo Dick's adventures with Kim Jong-Il in North Korea) as having the most outlandish and implausible plot of all the Rogue Warrior novels. In this one, Marcinko must impersonate none other than Fidel Castro, and even eventually go into Cuba and meet up with "The Beard" himself, with the infamous Mr. Murphy (or Murphy's Law infamy) dogging Dick and his intrepid teammates (Shotgun, Mongoose, Doc Tremblay, Trace Dahlgren, and Matthew "Junior" ...more

Chances are, if you're reading this review, you're not manly enough to handle the Rogue Warrior series. If you were, you wouldn't be wasting your time here, you'd be lighting a stogie with the smoldering remains of your enemies as you turned the last page in the book. Did you know the pages of these books are made of fiberglas and serrated steel? It's the only material strong enough to handle the words. If you didn't notice, if you thought that the pages were just regular smooth pulp paper, then ...more

I've been reading the Rogue Warrior series since I heard him being interviewed by his friend Jesse Ventura back when Ventura had a radio talk show before being Governor. It's a guilty pleasure for me, sometimes a bit jingoistic and unrealistic, but hey, it's entertaining so who cares if it's sometimes a bit politically incorrect?

The stories usually follow a formula where Dick is hired to do a "sneak and peak" or some other security job and ends up stumbling across a plot to destroy the country

“Seize The Day” by Richard Marcinko and Jim DeFelice is the first of the Rogue Warrior books I've read in a long time. It is the first of Marcinko's that I've read with him teamed up with DeFelice, and I found it to be just what I expected. It's a fast paced “tough guy” read with tough guys and women taking out bad guys. It's a light fun read for some escapism enjoyment.

If you like Marcinko's other books in this series, you'll most likely enjoy this one too. The plot focuses on trouble in Cuba

As others have said, another action packed adventure from the rogue warrior.

It has action, gruffness, intrigue, and is in some parts a lot of fun as he extols and curses Murphy and his meddling in his plans.

Too much creep and peep, not enough shoot and look for Marcinko.

Fun read.
Capers in Cuba and some in Panama.
Plot to infect people with ebola and send to US when Castro dies.

RW as Castro... Doesn't look very promising but I haven't started it.

Fun, light, somewhat predictable, if you've read any of the others....
