I think I have seen this hand in a book (Kelsey?) somewhere, certainly the theme.

Another old chestnut with a similar theme.
Against South's 4.
West leads Q ruffed by East.
Plan the play.

I now know where I have seen this theme before at least once:

Bridge Master, black series board 23:



West leads the diamond king and East turns up with 4 diamonds to the queen and ten.
At trick 5 East will switch to the club jack to which West shows out

This is the one where you unblock the K and A of clubs at trick 1, draw trumps, cash A exit on clubs, take a double discard on the clubs, then a ruff and discard then cross ruff/ruffing squeeze basically you can't be prevented from ruffing out whichever red suit gets unguarded.

Against South's 4, West leads Q ruffed by East.
CyberYeti is right: Sacrifice KA on 1st trick. Win East's return, cashing K, A, AK, and exit in s to West. On West's first continuation, play loser-on-loser: discard a from dummy and a from hand. On the next , discard dummy's last and ruff in hand. East succumbs to a criss-cross trump squeeze.
