So if you have a single non-concurrent client, along, submitting these
reads that take 65 ms - are you disk bound (according to the last
column of iostat -x 1), and how many reads per second (rps column) are
you seeing relative to client reads? Is the number of disk reads per
client read consistent with the actual number of sstables at the time?

The behavior you're describing really does seem indicative of a
problem, unless the the bottleneck is legitimately reads from disk
from multiple sstables resulting from rows being spread over said
