I am reading “Ten Ways To Succeed In The Opening“ by Tim Onions and David Regis. On page 48, there is a problem I am trying to solve.
However, I can’t figure out what Black should do next.

I feel some doubt about this book. It is self-published by writers who are not well-known. I am sure they have in mind 1..Qh4 with some followup like 2 0-0 Nf6 3.h3 (to prevent Ng4) Bxh3 4.Qxa8 Qg3. A much better defence for White is 2. d4! and I do not think that Black is winning at all. If 2...Qxe4+ 3.Be3 and Black must prevent Qxh7 so 3...Nf6 4.dxc5 and White looks fine, or if 2...Bb6 3.Nd2 followed by Nf3. I dont think you need to reproach yourself with missing anything
