Edgar-winner Patterson ( The Jericho Commandment )he is also chairman of J. Walter Thompson USAalmost captures the slick, conspiracy-theory giddiness of pre- Prizzi Richard Condon. While leading a raid against top drug-dealer Alexandre (``the Grave Dancer'') St.-Germain, New York police Lieutenant John (``Stef'') Stefanovitch is caught in a devastating ambush and crippled. French-born St.-Germain, enforcing and enjoying his harsh, ``street law'' terror, kills Stef's wife. Two years later St.-Germain is gunned down in a posh Manhattan brothel.
