English term or phrase: bringing back all kinds of pervert off the street
Beller tilted his head to look over Fabel's shoulder towards the body.
"Whoever it was is a complete psycho. Mind you, she was asking for trouble getting mixed up in this game - bringing back all kinds of pervert off the street."

Actually, I don't quite understand the whole sentence. It was at the crime scene and the victim is a girl and a prostitute. I guess "getting mixed up in this game" means "her job as a prostitute" ? but I don't understand --> "Bring back all kinds of pervert of the street"

Explanation:
The context isn't indicated, but I'm surmising from what I do see, particularly the "off the streets" bit - she's mixed up in prostitution which attracts sexual deviants of all kinds, and they were in the streets looking for street prostitutes to service them, but she brought them off the street - into her place of work? a brothel, a hotel? perhaps the background story gives this info.

agree  Marie-Hélène Hayles: "in this game" is a generic term but may also be intended specifically here, as "on the game" is GB slang for working as a prostitute. As for the "bringing back", I'd assume it meant back to her own home but without more context it's impossible to be sure
