Well, the first one that come to mind is Heinlein's "Sixth Column"...

Over at LibraryThing, the books with "hidden enemy" in the title far outnumber the books tagged, "hidden enemy." Hmm.

Walter Wager's TELEFON comes to mind, originally a novel then adapted to a movie with Charles Bronson.

Sleepers was an amusing look at the notion of Soviet spies embedded in the UK

Sleepers was excellent. I immediately heard the theme music in my head when I saw this comment, and I haven't watched it since the 90s. I think.

House of Thunder, by Dean Koontz (writing as Leigh Nichols, his romance novel pseudonym) fits your description and is cheerfully bonkers in its premise.

Tim Powers, Declare

A lot of the suggestions seem to be about outright takeovers, which I think are much more common than subversion stories (even if not nearly as common as the-Nazis-won stories). Amis (Kingsley) also did one of the latter, Russian Hide-and-Seek.


Point Ultimate by Jerry Sohl

This may not fit your desire exactly, as the Commies in this book aren't exactly hiding under the bed, but as the SFE notes, it's a fine example of 1950s Paranoia, and I happened to be reading it exactly as I saw the note in File 770 that said you were looking for books on the notion of the Commie menace, and for that matter the book would have fit very well with your long ago series on rasfw of reviews of books set around the turn of the millennium -- so, I suggest Jerry Sohl's 1955 novel POINT ULTIMATE. You could also check out Damon Knight's less than thrilled take on the book in IN SEARCH OF WONDER.
