|Plot Summary of The Last Lesson|
Jaishree Pelham comes home one winter day to her husband's dead body. After being suspect by the police, she learns that someone else may have had a motive to kill her husband--her ex-lover, Tim Nancine, the father of her child. But she doesn't even know where he lives. Then Tim shows up out of the blue, knowing everything, and says he knows who killed her husband. When Tim offers to help prove her innocence, she isn't convinced that he's not involved, especially since the police suggest that he may have a 8 year old grudge against her! In the end, she has no choice but to cooperate with him. Jaishree realizes she never stopped loving Tim. Once she learns that the murderer is someone with an obsession for Tim, she fears it is too late for her heart.
