Maybe the hardest chess puzzle ever?

Perhaps Bobby has a point? Instead of winning the Queen but walking into a mate, Black can play 4..Kg4 to escape the net. Then its not so obvious. For example 5.Qc8+ Kxg3 6.Qxa6 wins a piece, but then ..c4+ 7.Kd5 e2 8.Qa1 Kf2 and BLACK wins! I am sure that there actually is a win and I think it starts with 5.Qf6. If then 5..Kxg3 6.Qxh6 looks easy enough. But it was a reasonable question.
