''Mona Lisa Overdrive'' by Creator/WilliamGibson is the third novel in Literature/TheSprawlTrilogy. Published in 1988, the book switches off between the interwoven stories of [[{{RevolvingDoorCasting}} four different protagonists]], who are each involved in a plot to kidnap famous sim-star Angie Mitchell: [[{{HookerWithAHeartOfGold}} Mona, an innocent young prostitute]]; Kumiko, the [[{{MafiaPrincess}} daughter of a Yakuza businessman]], Slick Henry, an ex-convict turned junk artist; and Angie herself, who has the unique power to enter the Matrix without a computer. Characters who return from the first two books include Angie and Bobby Newmark (from ''Literature/CountZero''), Molly from ''{{Literature/Neuromancer}}'' (now called Sally Shears), and the Finn, from both (well, sort of).
