An unwritten rule of chess.com puzzles...  when all else fails... use a queen sacrifice.

Got it second go - I was looking at Rd6!! blocking checks and leading to forced mate but obviously was wrong lol! Then the queen sac was the obvious move and the other 3 moves were easy, good puzzle :)

The king was in a double check.

Because the king had to move, it was a double check from Bishop on f5, and the Rook on h6. No possible move but move it out of the way.
