Doing it with check

A puzzle I've lifted off It is White to play and win, and is the kind of position you are likely to get at the end of a blitz (or rapid) game, when you only have a few seconds left to find the win. The title of this post is of course a clue.

Qh4+ Kg7 Qd4+ Kh6 Qf4+ Kg7 Qe5+ Kf6 Rh5+ gxh Qf6# and if Qd4+ Kg8 black wins b8 rook with a check otherwise it's forced mate again.

What am I saying, Black will force mate after winning the rook anyhow.
