    Can't Black's b6 Knight move to d7, then, after White's rook moves to h4, that same Knight goes to f8, backing up the vulnerable Pawn on h2.

    Look back at the answers. Short 1...Bg4 means mate in 5 (as requested). 1...Qf8 is a mate in 4! That's the difference! Cool

    What if black answers the first move by g5 ? 

    1- Rf4  g5

    and black continue by

    2- ... Rg6

    I think the mate threatening dosen't exist anymore !

    What do you think?

    Take a look at the position after 1...g5.  Look for a different type of mate other than the one the puzzle demonstrates.  You should find it rather quickly.
