    black is about to checkmate.

    But white can turn the tables around!!

    can you find the amazing come-from-behind move?

    If the king takes the queen, white has nothing left and can resign.  The knight needs to be on h6 for this to work, as this prevents the king from taking and it can then deliver checkmate on f7. 

    If the queen was, for example, on e6 to start this puzzle, then white would have the basic smothered mating pattern.  The solution would be 1. Nf7+ Kg8 2. Nh6+ (a double check) Kh8 (2...Kf8 3. Qf7#) 3. Qg8+ Rxg8 4. Nf7#.  The queen starts your puzzle on the right diagonal, just on the wrong square, which gets in its own knight's way.
