    1.Re8+ also mates, but I guess it takes one move longer after 1...Qxe8 2.Qc7+ Ka8 3.Qc8+ Qxc8 4.Rxc8 mate. I prefer puzzles that don't have multiple solutions of roughly equal value.

    You are right.  I thought briefly of 1.Re8+ Qxe8, but didn't follow it any further, because I immediately saw the 1.Qc7+ Qxc7 sequence that would let me move Re8+ without the rook being captured.
