whats wrong with doing Rb1 in the first move?
edit: nevermind, i just realized the king can escape to d8
I first thought I had to do a material gaining fork, but the mate was more obvious.
o, yes, once more time
Nice mate in 4
Rook sac - rook substitute - feeble black queen response - white queen nicely completes the puzzle. - LOVELY JUBBLY !

Even though I solved the puzzle, there is an inner emptiness in my soul. I am not on the first page. One day maybe but not now. I bow my head in quiet resignation.
