It's worth noting 6...Qh4 is a horrific blunder.  Simply Nxh4 wins the bishop after Bxe2, Bxe2.

1.Nd6....Kc7
2.Qb7#

Please correct me if I'm wrong. (And I probably am)

the last move could also be Qa7, or am I missing something?

Pawns are, like, the very least likely piece to mate with.

OrangeMouse, your first puzzle on pg. 6 is bad, instead of 30. ... Rb7, why not 30. ... Qe1#?
