To be honest, I had to use an engine to find the explanation.  But as you can see, taking with the rook results in a quicker mating sequence that is completely forced.

 very good,i really thought Rh6 was a better move,i need to do less thinking and more playing,thanks for ruining my theory,you are the guys that keep me going,have a good day and great annalogy,the more i am wrong the more i long to be right

Good Puzzle, but what if at first move of black instead of king?

rooks play at Rxh6  game might move towards opponents.

6.Rxh8...Kxh8 7.Qf6+...Kh7 or Kg8 8.Qg7# also works or correct me if not

Black only need one move Q on and if R x h6 than it would not be posible force move.
