The brave fighters of the Communist Party of Malaya lived hard lives in the jungles, pledging allegiance to the Party above all else. But despite their dedication, many were lost due to a traitor in their midst – one so high-ranking that nobody would have suspected him.

Dave Anthony’s historical novel follows the developing love of two of the guerrilla fighters; the multiple identities of their Beloved Leader and the uneasy cooperation between the British and the communists against their common enemy.

"The Red Bicycle tells a fascinating story inspired by the Communist Party of Malaya's most infamous operative. Weaving together fact and fiction, Dave Anthony has produced a compelling historical narrative that spans four South East Asian countries. More importantly, he has provided a window into the lives of Party members by highlighting the personal relationships of his main characters. In so doing, he succeeds in giving them a human face; something conspicuously absent in most other accounts of the Party."
