1.Ne4(threat 2.Qg7++)Rg8
2.Qh7+ Kxh7
3.Nxf6+ Kh8
4.Rxg8++
looks about right.I like this one.
also
1.Ne4 Ng6 loses material after
2.Rxg6 Nf5
3.Nxf6 etc

I should also mention that after
1.Ne4 Nh5(Preventing Qg7++)
2.Nxf6(threatQh7++)Nxf6
3.Qg7++

or
1.Ne4 Nf5(preventing Qg7++)
2.Nxf6 wins
More to this puzzle than I thought but once you see that if white\'s Knight wasn\'t on g3 white would control the g file it becomes obvious that it\'s time to move the knight.Then it becomes a matter of where to move it to.

The difficult move (first line) presumably was 2 Qh7+?-

It can be because if you miss it you go back to square one.Then it might be an hour or two later that you tell yourself \"maybe I should go back to the beginning.I must have missed something.\"I think most people should be able to find 2.Qh7+ though.Hard to say-

Wow! You\'ve hit on the solution right on the head windmill! To make everything clear for everyone (especially to those who\'re not familiar with the algebraic notation), the solution goes like this.

1.Ne4
The best place for the knight. It will now cooperate pefectly with the queen.

The easiest way: White decoys the king into a mate in two.

However, 2.Rxg8+ should also give mate:
