    A good puzzle as the black queen had the potential of a mate in one, very easy to overlook.

    Why wouldn't the black king or rook take the white bishop? 

    If the King or the Rook took the white Bishop, then black's Queen would just go Qh7#, being backed up by the Rook on h3.

    it would be pointless, as the next move would be check mate anyway from your queen.

    A good puzzle showing the advantage of playing the white pieces was pointed out here.  Because the white pieces went first black pieces couldn't implement their mating sequence. This led to easy mate by white pieces.

    An interesting "sub-puzzle" is what was Black's Last Move?

    Assuming that Black does not normally miss one move mates, then there can only be one possible last move!
