South to lead with hearts as trumps.  North-South to win eight tricks.

Unfortunately I didn't discover until July 2017 that this problem is unsound.  The solution given by Coffin assumes that South leads the ♣Q at trick two, followed by the ♣J when West ducks.  In that case the play is quite interesting, but on either of those tricks South could alternatively lead a low club, ducked to East, and then the play is less interesting.
