That's a good try that's very close to the idea. In this specific diagram, Black can reply to 1.Ba6 with 1...Rh8+. Or if the king were in another position out of checking range, then a move such as 1...c5 would delay the inevitable. White will certainly win here with any reasonable play, but the shortest mate begins with the forcing move 1.Qxc6+!
Mine was a help mate solution (as opposed to forced).
