No, it's not. 4... Ng7 blocks it.

Why does black play Bf8 after white plays Qe8+? Why not Kh7?

The first move was a natural choice - one I would make in a game.  But I didn't expect my opponent to hand me his black-squares bishop and a path to checkmate in response.  I expercted 1. ... Kh7, and I don't see a checkmate from there.  In a game, I would probably take the bishop at c8, but I'll look further for a mating line.

EDIT: Oh, now I see it:  1. ... Kh7, 2.g6#

No, 4.Qg8+ is answered by  4. ... Ng7

And then it is too late for Nf4 to be checkmate because black King can then escape to f5.
