Formerly based in Portsmouth but now relocated in the West Country, he is best known for creating the character of DI Joe Faraday, following several standalone novels. He contributed a column to The Portsmouth News. He received both a BA and an MA in English from the University of Cambridge.

He worked as a script-writer with Southern Television before becoming a researcher and later a director. He filmed the seabed wrecks of the Titanic and the Bismarck (with American oceanographer Robert Ballard) and produced ITV’s account of Richard Branson’s attempt to cross the Atlantic by balloon.

Adaptations

Gétévé and France Télévisions started adapting Hurley's Faraday stories in 2011 through 90 minute television films under the title Deux Flics sur les Docks (lit. Two Cops on the Docks). Jean-Marc Barr and Bruno Solo headline the series, portraying Joe Faraday and Paul Winter respectively. By the end of 2013, six films have been produced and broadcast, adapting the novels Angels Passing, Cut To Black, One Under, Blood and Honey, Deadlight and The Take.
