    Probably missing something, but can't black escape mate by avoiding taking the Queen?

    In which case I don't understand why Nd5+ isn't as good a move as the answer given. Is there a missing piece in the puzzle that would have prevented Nd5? Or am I missing an escape for black after 2. Nxe7?

    If the king were to not capture the queen then the queen has a secondary target. The queen is hanging behind the king.

    I did not solve the puzzle correctly. I saw the fork, and then decided no further analysis was needed b/c winning the queen is winning the game in short work.

    In a real game I would decide for the fork.

    If black plays 1. Ka5,Kb5 or Kc4 After we play 1.Qa3+, Black will lose the queen immediately.

    the knight fork is just as good but not as pretty, i suggest the black queen be put on f8 rather than e7

    look at the first move (Qa3+) then figure out the board coordinates
