A bookish young boy named Benedict moves into a new town. His first stop is the town's library, where he stumbles on a crime investigation. May Roeca, a well-respected detective who uses a mix of sharp reasoning and hunches to solve her cases has stayed behind.
She invites Benedict to stay and take a crack at solving the mystery, which has been deemed a closed case by everyone but May.
The world is full of mysteries, and May and Benedict are determined to solve all of them. Benedict is a crime fiction enthusiast who uses his know-how and logic to solve cases, whereas May is a natural sleuth who usually arrives at an instinct before she arrives at a logical conclusion.
Pageturner is a mix of The Mysterious Benedict Society and Detective Conan. Despite the sometimes morbid subject matter, it has a cozy atmosphere, one that naturally invites mysteries.
Books are used as an aesthetic guide throughout. All the button pressing sounds in the games come from books, and in Pageturner: Something Other, a comic based on the series, many of the pages are designed to look textured instead of the normal glossy look.
