The Tricycle Spy: A biographical novel by Neil Hallam

28 Mar 2020

Neil Hallam is a retired Nottinghamshire Police Officer, just like his father and mother before him.

The Tricycle Spy is a biographical novel, based on his Father's lifetime fight against communism. Gordon Hallam first worked with Special Branch as a young soldier in the Malayan Emergency. Upon leaving the Army, Gordon joined the Police, serving in Traffic and CID, before again working with Special Branch in England.

A crippling stroke ended Gordon's Police career, but it did not end his involvement with Special Branch. Now disabled and riding a tricycle, Gordon's former colleagues put him back to work as an undercover agent. This time Gordon was spying on left wing subversives, trying to make a toe hold for communism in Britain.
