Jim Longworth is an attractive, brilliant, yet hard-to-get-along-with homicide detective from Chicago who was forced into exile after being wrongfully accused of sleeping with his former captain’s wife. Using the payout he received from the Chicago PD, Longworth searched for the simple life and moved to the sleepy resort town of Palm Glade, Florida, joining the local bureau of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) figuring it’ll be an easy piece of time. Longworth prefers to work his cases alone when possible, and sharing his theories with other detectives or departments only serves to annoy him. But despite his cocky, annoying self-confidence, people put up with him because he’s a little too charming to ignore, and damned good at solving murders.
Jim’s personal life hit a roadblock at the beginning of Season 2 when Callie’s husband Ray was released from prison and re-entered her life. Adding to the complication, Jim’s old partner and own ex-flame from Chicago, Samantha Harper, arrived in Palm Glade to pursue a case and ended up staying to re-ignite her relationship with Jim. After Ray was forced into witness protection and Sam returned to Chicago to accept a promotion there, Jim became ready to re-kindle his romance with Callie.
