How about Qd2 as the first move? the only options for black are Kc4, followed by Qa2, or Rd2, followed by Ne3

close but there's Nd4 there

So, starting with Qc2. If he does Nd4, finish with c4.

1. Q-d2    N-d4  2. N-e3#

1. Q-d2    K-c4   2. Q-a1#

1. Q-d2    c4      2. N-e3#     Not sure, but all look good.

After Qc2, can't black just push the pawn to c4, protecting the rook?

Qh1+ leaves him only two options, both of which are mate in one.  He can either block with the rook:

Qh1+, Rf6, Ne6#

or he can move the king to c4

Qh1+, Kc4, Bf7#

This sound right to you guys?

I believe 1. Qc2 is the soltuion!
