    Black. If white plays anything other than Rxd6 then white will lose, as 1... Rxd1, 2. Rxd1 Qxd1 is mate.
    If white plays 1.Rxd6 then .... Qxd6, 2. Qxd6 exd6 will follow. From here it could go either way in theory, but I think the precarious position of white's queen and the well-defended position of Black's will hand the latter victory (and black is also pawn up).

    I can't find a winning tactic and white is on the brink of losing a piece so:
    1.Rxd6,Qxd6 2.Bh6+,Kxh6 3.Nf7+,Rxf7 4.Qxf7 gaining the exchange for the inevitable loss of a piece.

    Best I could find

    You're right of course, but maybe better is 1.Rxd6 Nxd6 covering f7. White is surely lost here.

    4..... Ng7 looks like the move.
    If Black is not alert he could be in trouble 4...Nc7 5.Qf8+
    I agree that White is lost though.

    it doesn't work mate, thats what i was trying, either that or starting with the queen sac. you need to do something with the d file, or you stop short. . . surely, somebody tell me i'm not crazy here

    But before I have to do something about the d-file you have to do something about your king.
