Lesson Learned is the sixth case of the World Edition. It is set in Montpellier, France.


As last seen in Portugal, a mysterious note written in blood was sent to the team, telling them to come to Montpellier.

The team then had to investigate a nearby high school only to discover a strangled corpse, then shipped to autopsy. Per Laura Clément, a local heiress and a student, his name was Thomas Tournier, a classmate of hers.

According to a syringe loaded with a tranquilizing serum found in Montréal's basket that she lost during her last visit to Mlle. Clément, Montréal was trying to kidnap the victim and make him "spill the beans", allowing Max Storm and the player to assume that Thomas was one of the anarchists and a threat to many students of the school. Due to that, Montréal had to be locked into custody.

Nearing the end of the investigation, the team found enough evidence, proving that the killer was in fact the dean, Béatrice Cloutier. Béatrice believed that Thomas was an anarchist, as told by Montréal, and had to act fast to ensure the safety of the students. She used her tie to strangle the victim as she left him on the teacher's desk, hoping that the police might arrest one of the classmates or the teacher.

After further examination, Montréal was willing to continue her plans after being released from custody; a trip to Vienna. However, she refused to expose her reasons and uncover her secrets.

Later that day, the team received a request from Tanya Sachinidis, who claims that she received multiple threats from an unknown person. To solve Tanya's problems, the team had to move to Athens.
