    Well done SG. Here's the full solution:

    1 Qh6? (threat 2 Qxh7)
    1 ... dxe5 2 N4xe5
    1 ... Rg8/Rh8 2 Nxb2
    1 ... Qe3 2 Qxe3
    but 1 ... Qd4!

    1 Rf4? (threat 2 Qf5)
    1 ... dxe5 2 N6xe5
    1 ... Rxf8 2 Nb4
    1 ... Qd4 2 Rxd4
    but 1 ... Qe3!

    1 Rb7! (threat 2 Qf5)
    1 ... dxe5 2 Qa3!
    1 ... Rxf8 2 Rb3
    1 ... Qe3 2 Nxb2
    1 ... Qd4 2 Nb4
