Black to move


How would you play in this position?

P.S. Don't miss the Lublin round robin featuring 8 very strong grandmasters.

Too bad I cannot create a sequence like in chess.com, but here is the PGN: 
 
[Date "????.??.??"] 
[Result "*"] 
[FEN "3q1rk1/5ppp/1n2pP2/3pP3/1p3QP1/1N1P4/r6P/1K2R1R1 b - - 0 1"] 
 
1...Qa8 2.Rgf1 ( 2.Qc1 Na4 3.Kxa2 Nc3+ 4.Kb2 Qa2# ) ( 2.Ref1 Qa3 3.Rf2 Qxb3+ 4.Kc1 Qc3+ 5.Kd1 Qxd3+ 6.Ke1 Ra1+ ) 2...Qa3 3.Rf2 Qxb3+ 4.Kc1 Qc3+ ( 4...Ra1+ 5.Kd2 Qc3+ ) 5.Kd1 Ra1+ 6.Ke2 Rxe1+ 7.Kf3 Qxd3+

the right way to continue the attack requires that black sould play 1... Qc8! (threathing mate in c2) ,and now if white plays : 
A/2 Kxa2 Qc2+ and 3... Ra8+forces mate. 
B/2 Qc1 Qa6 with many threats (Qxd3+ /Rc8/and even Na4 )then if white protect the d3 square _for example_by 3 Rg3 he will not be able to protect the squares b3 and b2 after 3...Rc8 4 Qd1 Rb2+! and 5...Qa3# 
C/2 Rc1 Qa6 3 Qxb4 (to prevent Rb2+ and Qa3#)3... Rxh2(threats mate in a2)4Rc2 
(or 4 Na5 Qd3+ ...etc) 4...Rxc2 5 Kxc2 Qa2+ forces mate after 6Kc3 Rc8+ 7Kd4 Qf2# or wins the rook g1 after 6Kd1 Qb1+!

I was thinking of sacrificing the R at b2 if white plays Qg5. 
 
Qc8 sounds good.
