Tijdens een romantisch weekeinde in Venetië raken Van In en Hannelore toevallig betrokken bij de moord op Filip Vandecasteele, een Oostendse reder en tevens eigenaar van een visverwerkend bedrijf. Als blijkt dat het slachtoffer een paar uur voor zijn dood werd gebeld door een Vlaming, leidt het spoor naar Oostende, waar Van In en Versavel kennismaken met het ruige vissersmilieu, The Brothers of Harley (een extraordinary motorclub), een cynische Nederlandse zakenman en de artistieke scène. Het wordt snel duidelijk dat heel wat mensen een motief hadden om Vandecasteele te vermoorden, maar telkens als Van In denkt dat hij op het goede spoor zit, duiken nieuwe elementen op die zijn hypothese op losse schroeven zetten.
