The Transfer by Nick Perry.

It's 5am on Monday 2 February and football's transfer window closes in eighteen hours. Danny Provisor is a football agent negotiating a last-ditch deal to bring Serbian prospect Slavko Ilich to the UK, but a call to his girlfriend Frankie reveals that Slavko hasn't returned home from a night out. Fending off phone calls from suspicious reporters and an increasingly irate Chief Executive, Danny searches for Slavko knowing that this deal will not only rescue his career, but also provide security for his family. With BBC Radio 5Live counting down the hours the pressure begins to build, and the deal and Danny's world start to collapse.
