    I usually start looking at forcing moves first. In this case it worked out well!

    1.Rc3+ Ka4 (the only move possible)
    2.Rc8! Qa5
    3.Ra8! Qxa8
    4.Nb6+ forks the king and queen

    Black can try 2…Qd7 but gets forked again by Nb6+
    Black can try 2…Qxh4 but still loses after

    3.Rc4+! Qxc4
    4.Nb6+, again forking king and queen.
