    Rf8. Anywhere the queen moves she'll be forked by the knight.[/b]

    Giving the solution is almost as good as solving the puzzle.

    [pgn]
    [FEN "5k2/1p3pp1/8/7P/b6r/P4K2/1P6/1Q6 b - - 0 1"]

    1... Rh1 {1..Qa2 2.Bb3 and 3.Rh3+ Everywhere else the Queen goes she gets skewered or pinned to the King except 1.Qg6 when 2.fxg6 knocks her off the board. ...[text shortened]... Qb1 Rh1 {Same move as 1.Rh1 expect this time the Queen cannot hide on h7. Beautiful.}[/pgn]
    What about Q-a2? It's a hideyhole anyway. Oh, B-b3, if Q takes, R-h3+ win queen. Queen has no hideyhole after B-b3.
