Great puzzle.  And second time on first page.

There is actually some variation in the puzzle, but if black plays differently, it still leads to a mate in five or less.  This diagram shows why.

Great use of the Knight to "block" the Queen's access to the back rank where all the action is.  I'll have to remember that idea.  Thanks for the instructive puzzle.

Looks like a smothered, but its quite different, actually.
