Chess Puzzle - 10

Hi friends! I'm finally adding a new chess puzzle to my blog after a pretty long hiatus. So, it is time to put on your thinking caps once again. Look carefully at the position (black to move) below:

It took me a really really long time to figure out how black can try to force a mate in 3 moves from here. (Note that the mate itself may not be unstoppable, but white will have to end up sacrificing a significant amount of material in order to counter the immediate threat.) Can you do better and spot the sequence quickly?

If you think you've got it, please do post your answer as a comment below...
