In the riveting new thriller Reasonable, from debut author KT Carlisle the plot twists and turns mercilessly as the years pass and Catherine (Cat), a raging alcoholic is found covered in blood, a kitchen knife in her hand and friend of 30 years Elaine dead in her kitchen.

Rachael, now a Detective, has devoted her life to discovering the truth, but so many good leads end nowhere. The death of Mia, followed by a series of ‘suicides’ which have occurred each year at the time of her death have kept her hunting for the truth.

Fast paced, the flow of the narrative is captivating as, just when you think the killer has been discovered, the lead peters out. The many foibles of humanity have ben carefully and skilfully woven into the plot which gives authenticity to the characters and the deeply ingrained search for truth and justice within us all.
