If you are looking for a Wilkie Collins book to begin with, I would recommend any of the longer works aforementioned (such as The Moonstone, The Woman in White, No Name, or Armadale) in lieu of this novel, as those novels are stronger in plot and narrative flow. There is also a film based on this work, a 1998 film based on the novel, which is quite unfaithful to the text, and sort of weak, in my opinion.
I enjoy Wilkie Collins immensely, and Basil definitely did not disappoint me. I was surprised by the ending, but pleasantly so.
