Qxc7+ Nxc7 Qd6#

I have (had) Genius 2,3 & 5, but unfortunately I'm in the middle of a Windows
reinstall, so don't have them installed right now and can't tell you how they do
on this position ... but they are good matesolvers, that at least I do remember
... :) Have you tried Genius on your kind of (crowded) positions?
