after 1. ... Kb8:

2. Ra8+ Kxa8

3. Qa6 Kb8 (forced because of pinned b7 pawn)

Nice. Took me a while to realise why the next right move would be to send the rook to a8.

Nice puzzle .. I needed to take help for first move... I thought the queen was hanging but it wasn't ... smooth & nice checkmate was hidden there.. happy .
