Interesting Position from Practical Chess Analysis

I worked on this interesting position last night while working through some of Buckley's Practical Chess Analysis.

You are supposed to visualize the position after gxf5 gxf5 Nxf5, determine who stands better, analyze and come up with the variation to be played.

Answer given below.

Though White has forked Black's Queen and Rook, he is in fact lost in this position.

Qb7+! d5 Qxd5+ Rf3 Qxf3+ Qxf3 Rb1+ Qf1 Rxf1#
