Summary, etc.:
This modern mystery tells the story of Cody and Virginia, who start talking while he is in Brooklyn and she is in Berlin. It is a romance that could only happen online, and they're happy together, though they've never physically met. Once Cody becomes suspicious that Virginia may not be in Berlin at all, he becomes obsessed with finding the truth. Tracking two parallel journeys that show how technology complicates modern love, The Heart Machine explores the evolving relationships among physical and emotional intimacy, isolation in the urban hive, and the seduction of hiding behind a screen.
