Having hunted him down and bundled him out to Blacklow Hill in Warwickshire, they conduct a trial that leads to a Welsh archer running Gaveson through with a dagger before cutting off his head. Grief stricken, Edward despatches Sir Hugh Corbett to investigate exactly who is responsible for his favourite's judicial murder. The king is also deeply disturbed by a number of gruesome murders perpetrated at the Dominican house in Oxfordshire where his beloved Gaveson's corpse now lies.
