I like this kind of puzzle with two parts… The first part is constructive task, where one has to look for the only possible mating position (it would be challenging even without the author’s hint). The second part is like more ordinary solving…

In the solving process, for me, to find the mate net was rather difficult. Then to find the solutions was much easier.
The explanations of the author (that I read after solving) about the composing process are clear and interesting.

All in all a very nice problem to solve.
